STOP THE FERRO GRÃO

Cargill wants to build a train to carry soy through the Amazon. Let's convince the Brazilian government to definitively cancel this death project. There is still time to stop these paths of destruction from advancing!

Speak out in support of the guardians

Send an email to the Brazilian government to urge them to support the guardians and evict the illegal invaders that are destroying their forest home and threatening their uncontacted Awa relatives.

2. vote with your dollar 

Everytime we make purchases at the supermarket, we're actually voting with our dollar. Equip yourself with the knowledge surrounding which companies and products are causing the most deforestation. Use your voice to let these companies know we do not condone these extremely harmful business practices.

3. Divest from credit cards and banks involved in deforestation

Financial institutions are using your money to bankroll deforestation in tropical forests around the world. By divesting from the banks and credit card companies most involved with deforestation, you can make a difference. 

Activists in the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline created this great breakdown of how to divest from harmful banking institutions. Click below for the guide.

4. Become a guardian in your hometown

Regeneration is the antidote to despair. Find ways your can get involved in environmental and social issues in your area. If the Amazon feels too far away, assume the role of guardian in your community and help protect your natural spaces and fellow community members. Start a reforestation initiative in a deforested area. Help clean up a local stream or park. Advocate for stricter environmental protections in your local or state government. Every little action helps.
