Pachamama Alliance’s 2018 Annual Luncheon Fundraiser in San Francisco took place on Thursday, November 15. Thank you to everyone who was able to join us in person or online.

Here are a few selected highlights to update and inspire you.

1. Isabel Wisum, Vice President of the Achuar Nation of Ecuador

“Women are now listened to in our culture in a way they never were before. Our opinion, our voice, is respected.”


2. Manari Ushigua, President of the Sápara Nation of Ecuador

“No more selling off indigenous lands. The consequences are potentially fatal not only to us, but to our entire world, even right here as we experience the effects of climate change.”

“We don’t need more oil.”


4. Lynne Twist, Co-founder of Pachamama Alliance
