Idle No More SF with support from Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network, WECAN (and many allies!) held an action for Mother Earth and Climate Justice in collaboration with One Billion Rising for Justice! At the gates of the Chevron Refinery in Richmond, California participants wrote "love letters" to Chevron detailing what they would love to see Chevron do to help the climate. With Pennie Opal Plant from Idle No More leading the way, the action at the refinery included prayer, speeches, a round dance and the reading and signing of the WECAN Climate Declaration. Women are rising with fierce resolve, because our national and international policy level on climate change is not equivalent to the urgency we are facing.
