Stand up for Women Defenders of the Amazon!

Amazonian indigenous women secured a meeting with the country's president, Lenin Moreno!

They presented their demands for an Amazon free of industrial resource extraction and an end to the threats and attacks against themselves and other Earth Defenders. In other words, they're demanding respect for their lives, their cultures, and their rainforest homes.

Though they were granted a meeting, there's no guarantee the president will act upon the women's demands. Show your support for them by sending a message to Ecuador's president today!

Dear President Moreno –

I want to recognize the importance of your decision to meet with the Amazonian Indigenous Women on Thursday, and to express my support for them, their rights, and their security.

I call on you to pay close attention to their demands; these women protect not just the future of their Amazonian indigenous nations, but also the future of the Amazon itself and of the entire planet, given that the Amazon is an ecosystem necessary to preserve in order to fight climate change.
