Women's Earth & Climate Action Network
City/Country: New York City, USA
"Women around the world are well aware that what is happening in the 'halls of power' is not nearly enough action given the degree of climate crisis that we face and the injustices and impacts felt by women on the frontlines across the globe. We are mobilizing women from around the world to stand for climate justice and bold action at COP21 and beyond.” -Osprey Orielle Lake, Executive Director, WECAN International
On September 29th, an incredible group of women took action outside of the United Nations in New York City where world governments were meeting for the UN General Assembly. We are rising and calling for action to keep fossil fuels in the ground and protect the web of life for generations present and future.
