We Can Act Now, We Must Act Now: WECAN Newsletter June 2015

WECAN International Newsletter

Dear Friends and Allies, 
 
We can act now and we must act now. This has always been a guiding principle for the Women's Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN International), but in recent months we have begun to feel the heat with ever greater intensity. World governments are meeting in Paris for the UN COP21 in six short months, working to finalize a climate agreement that will effect our global trajectory in a profound way. As a network of international Climate Women, there has never been a more important moment to raise our voices and mobilize for just, equitable, and transformational change.
 
This newsletter provides a glimpse into WECAN International's efforts to foster climate justice, women's leadership, and respect for the Earth's ecosystems at this critical time, both in policy circles and on-the-ground with women and frontline communities worldwide. From Climate Solutions Trainings in the DR Congo and Middle East/North Africa region, to advocacy work with Indigenous allies in Latin America, and efforts to create a collective voice and action network of U.S women through our new 'U.S. Women's Climate Justice Initiative', we are amping up our efforts and invite your ongoing participation.
