It’s LAND’s 1st birthday!

Today is LAND’s 1st birthday! We are reflecting on all we have accomplished this past year as the only environmental law non-profit in Northern Ontario taking legal action to protect nature and Indigenous rights. 

In honour of our first birthday, will you help us reach our goal of raising $3,650? Yes, I’ll celebrate with LAND!

What has your support resulted in?

In the past year, we have laid the groundwork to be responsive to the legal needs of communities to protect the health of their lands and waters from contamination and emerging environmental threats. e have also created space to amplify community voices – whether in the courts, before lawmakers, or the media – to precipitate change.

As we look back on our first year, we’re celebrating the many milestones you helped to make happen, including:

  1. Advancing the recognition of and respect for Indigenous legal traditions. LAND is leading the justice community in redefining how it does environmental law, recognizing the long-overdue need to respect and consider Indigenous laws and legal traditions.
  2. Launching a campaign to create a first-ever law that protects biodiversity and recognizes Indigenous-led conservation. Our legal work is pressuring governments to recognize Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas and create law which enshrines the protection of biodiversity in keeping with 2030 global biodiversity targets.
  3. Creating a legal defence fund to provide free environmental law services. Because of your support, we are able to represent Indigenous communities, non-profits, and community leaders in response to urgent threats to lands and waters.

Let’s keep up the momentum!

Our 2nd year of operations will be our most important yet as we shift our focus to growing our legal team.

Now that we have set the foundation that equips us to respond to the injustices of today, we are focused on expanding our reach and building a legal team equipped for the challenges of tomorrow.

Can you help us? Whether you share our posts with your friends, follow us on social media or become one of our donors to help us reach our goal of $3650, we sincerely thank you.
