Get involved

Find out about the many ways that you can get involved with MJAC and join the work for mining justice.

The Mining Justice Action Committee (MJAC) is a group of residents on Vancouver Island/unceeded Coast Salish Territories (British Columbia, Canada) united by concerns that many Canadian mining companies are responsible for human rights violations, social degradation and environmental crimes around the world.

Are you a visual or spoken word artist? Your art is needed to show solidarity with people who are in danger of intimidation and violence as they work to protect the air, land and water in their communities impacted by Canadian mining operations.
