KAIROS, founded in 2001, is a grassroots organization based in Toronto and made up of eleven national churches and church organization, twenty-three international partner organization, and Indigenous partner organizations in Canada. KAIROS works for Indigenous rights, ecological and social justice, and human rights in Canada and globally, relying on our strong international partnerships.
KAIROS will use their funding to bring together Indigenous women from Canada, Latin America, and the Philippines to lead a public symposium entitled Gendered Impacts of Resource Extraction in Vancouver; attend the GEMM conference (Global Energy, Minerals and Markets); and meet and strategize with Indigenous communities and the KAIROS grassroots network in British Columbia. Grant money will assist with travel costs for the Indigenous delegates from Canada, their registration for the GEMM conference, and their participation in the public symposium. Learn more.
