The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
The power of positive collective discourse cannot be overstated. Rainforest Fund invites writers, photographers, poets, environmentalists, and the IMPASSIONED to join our community of bloggers and forge a dynamic discourse to advance the rights of Indigenous People throughout the world's rainforests.
Indigenous Peoples' lands and livelihoods are threatened every day - from illegal logging, mining and palm oil extraction to discrimination, climate change and harmful government policies that disregard traditional land ownership - but this status quo can change.
Your voices and engagement surrounding the issues that affect Indigenous Peoples' lives will bring greater attention and awareness to their plight and, in effect, work to protect their human rights.
