There are so many important organizations you can support on #GivingTuesday. Why should IC be your charity of choice? Here is 10 reasons to give to Intercontinental Cry.

1. We Cover Frontlines

We go to incredible lengths to take you the front lines of the world, so that you can meet the Indigenous Peoples who are risking their lives to defend biodiversity and the ecosystems that house it.

2. We Are Decolonized

We inform, provoke, educate and inspire the international community with a unique brand of decolonized coverage that explores solutions, exposes injustice and provides facts with context.

3. We Expose Injustice

We act swiftly and fearlessly to expose the transgressions of any organization, government or corporation that negatively impacts indigenous rights.

4. We Investigate Threats to Biodiversity

We always look into potential and ongoing threats to biodiversity, especially when those threats are not being covered elsewhere.

5. We Raise Indigenous Voices

We give indigenous intellectuals, diplomats, community leaders and governing authorities a space to tell their own stories, without intermediaries.

6. We Catalyze Movements

We give indigenous movements like #IdleNoMore and #NODAPL early exposure, helping them reach the international community and gather the resources they need to organize effectively around emerging threats to their cultures, communities and territories.

7. We Underline Resilience

We give special attention to stories that underline language revitalization, cultural preservation, indigenous-led conservation, and a wide array of campaigns and cosmovisions that are crucial to our collective well-being.

8. We Follow-up on Stories

Long after the media loses interest in a story they once swarmed to, we continue to monitor the situation and follow-up as our resources will allow.

9. We are Holistic

Everyday, we strive to act in the best interests of the journalists we work with, the stories they cover, the people in those stories and the issues those stories cover.

10. We Set a Good Example

We set an impeccable journalism standard that is fearless, uncompromising, accurate, culturally responsible, and free of bias, propaganda and every form of sensationalism. We strongly believe that a fair and honest representation of the facts is all we need to achieve justice.
