Development & Peace: Thank you for putting People and the Planet First
A major focus of Development and Peace — Caritas Canada’s People and Planet First campaign is advocating for a law that compels Canadian companies to respect the human and environmental rights of local populations in their overseas operations. This fall, acting in solidarity with their brothers and sisters in the Global South, thousands of Canadians signed a petition asking the government to enact such a law.
On behalf of all those who struggle to preserve their land, lives, livelihoods, and lifestyles, Development and Peace — Caritas Canada thanks you for your commitment and mobilization. Together, we act in solidarity with the protectors of the Earth. Together, we have the power to change lives.
To continue supporting the petition and to keep up the campaign momentum, visit https://devp.org/en
