In the buildup to COP27 in November, WECAN (Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network) is demanding that governments and financial institutions take urgent climate action while supporting women’s leadership.
Join WECAN for a three-day forum where “grassroots, Indigenous, Black, Brown, and frontline women and gender diverse leaders, global advocates, and policy-makers will join together in solidarity to speak out against environmental and social injustice, draw attention to root causes of multiple interlocking crises, and present the diverse array of visions, projects, policy frameworks and strategies with which they are working to shape a healthy and equitable world.”
Right now, women and indigenous communities are under increasing attack around the world as well as in the US, with recent Supreme Court rulings against reproductive rights, tribal sovereignty, and climate action.
But, WECAN says, “As the climate emergency accelerates, now more than ever we need the solutions of women and gender diverse leaders to protect our communities and the global climate!
“The fight to end violence against women and violence against the land are interconnected, and we will continue to fight until the rights of women and gender-diverse people are protected, and until our communities and planet are thriving.”
