Indigenous Environmental Network

In this moment of overlapping crises, THRIVE offers a road map to a just recovery and regenerative future that not only invests in climate, infrastructure, jobs, and justice at the scale and scope necessary to address these crises, it also:

  • Prioritizes the strengthening of Indigenous and tribal sovereignty.
  • Upholds nation-to-nation relationships.
  • Strengthens consultation standards by codifying free, prior, and informed Consent (FPIC).
  • Recognizes the United Nations' Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
  • Addresses tribal concerns regarding jurisdictional authority.

Right now, we have the once-in-a-generation opportunity to demand Congress go big and bold by delivering a comprehensive jobs and infrastructure package that meets our communities' needs, protects the environment for future generations, and upholds Tribal sovereignty.
