We protect mother earth and her elements for future generations.
We strengthen community-based efforts to protect the environment and human health from the negative impacts of mining.
We work directly with communities affected by hard rock mining, the majority of whom are Indigenous or small, rural, poor communities.
The WMAN Indigenous Caucus is a community by and for Indigenous leaders to support one another, exchange ideas and resources, and work together to protect our land, air, and water, sacred sites and communities.
In partnership with the Indigenous Environmental Network, WMAN offers grants to Indigenous communities and non-profit grassroots organizations across the US and Canada that strive to protect the environment, ecosystems, cultural resources, and community health from the adverse impacts of hard rock mining and work towards a just energy transition.
WMAN unites over 400 individuals, communities and organizations in the U.S. and Canada.
WMAN's strength is our commitment to cross-cultural coalition-building. Our Indigenous and non-Indigenous collaboration is a successful model for moving towards a just and sustainable society. Together, we work to ensure that climate change solutions and the transition from fossil fuels do not exacerbate existing, or create new environmental degradation and social inequities.
