Emergency Mutual Aid Fund Fund
About This Fund
We are urgently requesting your help to meet the call from our grassroots base to quickly move mutual aid funding into the hands of our community-based Indigenous peoples from the U.S. and Canada (Central and South America on a case-by-case basis), who are experiencing loss of income, lay-off, and financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This rapid response support will be extended to community-based Indigenous peoples and organizations from the U.S. and Canada (Central and South America on a case-by-case basis), who either are helping the community with transportation and essential needs or who have lost their primary income from a home business.
About The Host Organization
Established in 1990 within the United States, IEN was formed by grassroots Indigenous peoples and individuals to address environmental and economic justice issues (EJ). IEN’s activities include building the capacity of Indigenous communities and tribal governments to develop mechanisms to protect our sacred sites, land, water, air, natural resources, health of both our people and all living things, and to build economically sustainable communities.
