Amplifying Queer/Trans Black, Indigenous, & Persons of Colour (QTBIPOC) Voices Fund

We are collecting money to be able to compensate QTBIPOC-identifying folks for commissioned work to create educational resources in any medium that can aid to further diversify and decolonize the viewpoints of our resources.

We will provide transparency and celebrate the receivers of money from this fund. We are now fundraising on an ongoing basis, so be a part of this change today!

Donate below!

OPTIONAL! Donate in someone's name, and we'll send along a thank-you e-card and let them know! What better way to show someone you care for them, than supporting a youth-led climate initiative working to ensure the future of our world? Sounds like love to us!
NOTE: We are registered as a non-charitable not-for-profit, meaning we cannot issue charitable receipts for tax deduction purposes. This is because a majority of our operations do not require funding, but we ask for donations to be able to increase our scope, and provide more meaningful avenues of advocacy!
Psst: If you prefer to mail in a cheque, you can mail it to:

Who We Are

Shake Up The Establishment is a youth-led, registered (#1190975-4) national non-partisan non-profit organization that operates within the geographical confines of what is currently known as "Canada", but what is referred to by its First Peoples, as Turtle Island. Indigenous peoples have inhabited Turtle Island for over 10,000 years, and were the sole inhabitants less than 500 years ago. We acknowledge that our address resides on Treaty 3 land, and is the traditional territory of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas Peoples. Turtle Island is still home to many Indigenous peoples and we at SUTE are thankful to be able to live, learn and work on this territory, whilst continuing to create meaningful change for the climate justice movement. We are aware that our actions as an organization and the work we put out have an impact on our land, and on all that inhabit it. We are humbled to be able to follow the lead of centuries long Indigenous-led efforts towards the protection and stewardship of this land and the people that inhabit it. We are committed to continually evaluating & decolonizing our practices, and we do our best to incorporate the lived experiences of the land defenders and protectors within our work. We also want to honour the voices of Black, and non-Black people of colour within our work, and continually recognize their resiliency in the face of years of systemic oppression as imposed by the Canadian state.


Our enterprise is inclusive of all folx who call the geographical confines of what is currently known as Canada, home, and we celebrate the horizontal learning that comes from our diverse identities. As an organization, we will try our utmost best to ensure that only individuals with lived experiences are speaking on behalf of their communities, while still recognizing that Black, Indigenous and communities of colour as well as the LGBTQ2S+ community, are not a monolith. We firmly believe in accountability, and commit to being as transparent as possible in our activism space; to research our topics well, support and centre community care, and minimize any harm, no matter the intent. We have strict policies and procedures to uphold these tenets, and update these on a yearly (or as-needed) basis.
