All proceeds going to RAVEN

RAVEN logo

RAVEN is a registered charity with a mission to raise legal defence funds to help Indigenous Peoples in Canada defend their treaty rights and the integrity of their traditional lands and cultures.

Since 2014, RAVEN has disbursed over $2.6 million dollars to their campaign communities. This support has resulted in the cancellation of permits for the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, fended off several efforts by Taseko Mines to destroy Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) for an open pit gold mine, and ensured the Beaver Lake Cree litigation has the funds to continue to trial to stop the degradation of their traditional lands by the tar sands industries. They are currently supporting 15 Nations in seven different legal actions, with more campaigns pending.
