Women's Earth and Climate Action Network
City/Country: Bay Area, California, USA
Women and girls around the world are facing disproportionate climate change impacts everyday, and are standing up to call for and implement just solutions and immediate action commensurate with the level of crisis we face. We are here to protect and defend the web of life, and we are issuing a wake up call to the world that the time has come for bold action to address the roots of the climate crisis and socio-ecological injustices. We know that violence against the Earth and violence against women are inseparable, and we stand in solidarity with women worldwide to dismantle these violent systems of oppression and destruction, and call for climate justice. We know that often it is Indigenous and frontline women who are the ones rising first to actively resist, revision and create the just world we seek - we are committed to highlighting their voices and acting in solidarity. As the seas rise, so do the women of the world. On these Ten Days of Global Mobilization - we stand with the women water and Earth defenders of Standing Rock, and of all peoples who are taking action everyday to protect the Earth, our communities and our global climate for generations to come.
