Join the Global Week of Action for the Amazon!

The Amazon is in a state of emergency and at a tipping point due to attacks on the rights, lives, and territories of Indigenous and forest peoples. In response, we're inviting you to join us and take action during the Global Week of Action for the Amazon. Join Indigenous organizations in Amazonía and allies around the world offering opportunities to get involved and collaborate with one another – all for the protection of the Amazon rainforest.
