Frontline and Indigenous Communities

RAN is committed to working with Indigenous communities and frontline communities directly impacted by profit-driven systems of injustice. We support the leadership of these communities in working on strategic and effective solutions to protect people and the planet.

Answer

We support Traditional and Indigenous Peoples’ rights, including the right to sovereignty, self-determination, reparations and the right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) regarding decisions implicating customary rights on traditional lands. We support and work by the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing.

At RAN we believe that Indigenous peoples are the best stewards of rainforests and that protecting Indigenous forests is one of the best ways to slow climate change and uphold the rights of the people who depend on those forests.
