Recently, the 10th session of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, a major international gathering of Indigenous activists, took place in New York City. Since our founding, MADRE has worked with Indigenous women and communities from around the world, and we invited our friends and partners to the MADRE office to celebrate their work and their achievements.

Below is MADRE Executive Director Yifat Susskind’s message of welcome to everyone who attended the party.
