Take a stand against the ongoing crisis regarding Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Relatives, Two-Spirits, and Transgender people (MMIWGR2ST).
Lithium Nevada Corp (LNV) is proposing a man camp for a lithium mining project near Thacker Pass, on Shoshone and Paiute land. We are asking for a permanent ban on man camps as part of extractive projects, and a reform on the outdated 1872 General Mining Law to give Indigenous communities more consent to mining projects on Indigenous land.
Why a ban on man camps?
The Indigenous communities of Nevada have suffered enough loss, and refuse to be subjected to the proposed "man camp" associated with the lithium mining project at Thacker Pass.
In addition to the harm and violence these projects bring to Indigenous people, they also bring destruction to the land and the climate. We are already seeing the deadly effects of climate change due to resource extraction projects, and continued lithium mines, as well as other types of mining, only further fuels the climate crisis, despite claims to the contrary.
We're counting on you to contact your elected officials to stop the ongoing MMIWGR2ST crisis.
Right now we are not targeting an elected official in your area.
