Laura Carlsen and JASS partners, with contributions from Rosanna "Osang" Langara, Lisa VeneKlasen, Patricia Ardon & Natalia Escruceria

This issue of Making Change Happen offers information, concepts and reflections from women, not just for other activists concerned with the rights of indeginous and rural peoples, but also for policymakers, leaders and others concerned with the pressing economic, political and environmental issues of our time. We believe that indigenous and rural women’s strategies to build strong communities in the midst of powerful dislocating and destructive dynamics offer innovative solutions to some of the world’s pressing problems. This work has convinced us, more than ever, that indigenous women are not only critical to defense of their territories and resources—they are central to sustaining the planet. Their voices must be heard.
