On Indigenous Peoples’ Day, we at The Tow Foundation want to honor native land by acknowledging that our office in New Canaan, CT sits on land taken from the Munsee Lenape people. You can read more about the Munsee tribe and find out whose ancestral land you are living/working on here.
As a funder of criminal justice reform, we also believe it’s important to discuss how Native Americans are overrepresented and routinely mistreated in our justice system. This curated collection from The Marshall Project is a fantastic resource for those looking to learn more.
Finally, for more information on the issues facing indigenous people today and how you can help, we recommend checking out the great work on allyship and advocacy being shared by The Opportunity Agenda.
