Native Organizing Training 2021
There is nothing else like NOA’s annual Native Community Organizing Training.
The seven-day in-person training for Native community leaders, the staff of Native nonprofits, and tribal entities is free of charge for those accepted. Workshops will include practices and history of Native community organizing,
spiritually directed Native power building for social change, and designing Native community grassroots campaigns. This year’s training is August 7 – 13, 2021, in Denver, Colorado. The deadline to apply is June 24, 2021.
Keystone XL is Cancelled!
For more than a decade, Native people and organizations have led the way in the struggle to stop the disastrous Keystone XL Pipeline. On his first day in office, US President Joe Biden signed an executive order to revoke the permit for the pipeline. Then on June 9, 2021, the owners of Keystone finally gave up. We won! Native Organizers Alliance is proud to have played a role in the historic victory.
Red Road to DC
In July, the Native Organizers Alliance will accompany the delivery of a totem pole from Lummi carvers and spiritual leaders to the new Administration, along with events in Washington, D.C. This will be the summit of a cross-country tour connecting twenty of the country’s Native-led struggles where sacred lands, waters, and wildlife are imperiled by dams, climate change, and extractive industries.
