Idle No More SF Bay: Mission Statement
- Idle No More SF Bay is a grassroots all-volunteer organization composed of Native and non-Native allies dedicated to climate change activism.
- We are Native women-led and multi-generational.
- Founded in 2013, our mission is to creatively do all we can to ensure the future of coming generations by addressing environmental harms caused by corporate extreme energy.
- We stand for clean air, water and soil, safe jobs and a sustainable future for the generations beyond.
- Our beliefs and conduct are rooted in Native tradition and we bring an indigenous perspective to climate work.
- We understand that our enemies are not other human beings but the thought forms that create separation, colonization and capitalism.
- We know that we are all related in the sacred system of life.
- We pray, conduct teach-ins, coordinate local nonviolent direct actions, encourage people to envision the future they want to help create, offer indigenous leadership, and work with other groups who resist the fossil fuel industry.
