International Funder for Indigenous Peoples will be hosting a funder webinar, in coordination with Amazon Emergency Fund (AEF), to amplify the call of Indigenous peoples facing a public health and humanitarian emergency due to the new surge of COVID-19 that is quickly spreading across the Amazon. Hear directly from Indigenous and NGO leaders working in solidarity to respond to this emergency to prevent ethnocide. We are grateful to have EDGE Funders Alliance co-sponsoring this event.
