Support Indigenous Solidarity

The World Student Christian Federation-North America is planning an Indigenous Solidarity Program to be held in Winnipeg, Treaty Territory 1, Manitoba, Canada from June 15 to 19, 2017. A group of 15 students and young adults from across the United States and Canada will be immersed in issues of racial justice and right relations, indigenous solidarity, indigenous theology and theologies of settlers’ solidarity, economic and eco-justice for indigenous people, mass incarceration of indigenous people in Canada, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Residential Schools in Canada and other relevant topics. This program will take place at the Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg.

In order to implement this program and provide scholarships to students, we are in need of funding. We are coming to you asking that you contribute financially to this event by sending a generous donation.

Together they will be representing all the six regions of the WSCF (Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and Caribbean, Middle East, and North America).

Support Indigenous Peoples 4 Peace

The World Student Christian Federation (WSCF) is committed to work for indigenous people’s rights around the globe. It is with this commitment that WSCF-NA, at the invitation of the WSCF Advocacy and Solidarity Committee and at the request of the Student Christian Movement (SCM) and other partners in the Philippines, is creating this campaign to raise funds for the support of the Lumads people of Mindanao.

All the money raised will go to the Lakbay Lumad movement, to support their message as they travel speaking up against injustice and to raise awareness about the politically-motivated violence and forcible displacement they are experiencing, and how this repression is linked to foreign policy and multi-national corporate interests in the region; as well as providing concrete support to Lumad schools and community projects.

Donate to our Go Fund Me Campaign to support Lakbay Lumad movement. Learn more information here: Indigenous Peoples 4 Peace.
