The Peace & Unity: Rebuilding Alliances panel is about rebuilding and strengthening alliances among all of us. In the face of injustice, extraction and climate crises, coming together is what we’ve been waiting for. 

We’ll touch on what’s happened and happening on the land in Wet’suwet’en territory (in Northern B.C.), hear stories of folks’ lived experiences on the Yintah (land) and front lines, explain the Coastal GasLink pipeline project and share what people can do to get involved, learn more and take action.  

We need a wide range of people to come together to make changes, find solutions and build unity. This panel is the beginning of an ongoing conversation regarding health and well-being of the land and people.

The purpose of Peace & Unity 

Peace & Unity is a movement focused on rebuilding alliances, elevating Indigenous sovereignty and rights and raising awareness about the climate crisis. 

Hereditary chiefs, land defenders and people on the ground share information with the goal of making changes, finding solutions and building unity. Our website offers these perspectives in various digestible forms to help people better understand complex issues surrounding climate change.
