“I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.” ~Angela Y. Davis

I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.

Idle No More is a movement founded by four women, Sylvia McAdam, Jess Gordon, Nina Wilson and Sheelah Mclean who decided they could no longer stay silent in the face of what they saw as a legislative attack on First Nation people and the lands and waters across Canada.

They built a movement of thousands – indigenous and non-indigenous people – in Canada and supporters around the world standing up to fight tar sands, deforestation, mining and other industrial development on First Nation lands.

Happy International Women’s Day!

  1. Can you please attribute the quote “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.” to its author, Angela Y. Davis. This quote has been spreading, unattributed, across the internet. As a WOC, her voice should not be silenced nor unattributed.
