The contributions of Indigenous women have not been visible or significantly included in contemporary social causes.
Against this backdrop, this is the critical moment and opportunity to support an Indigenous Women-led organization, Return to the Heart Foundation, which is focused on uplifting initiatives to achieve long-term narrative change strategies from within social movements.
*Return to the Heart Foundation is fiscally sponsored by Amalgamated Foundation.
