Explore and share resources available here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kC9IkiAMHyP9enrAvw6FMt3pGTzPtRXLc9E_RWn0S8E/edit We will be sending a clear message to the new U.S. Administration that, as women who stand on the frontlines of climate change across the U.S. and across the world, we are gravely concerned about the impacts of climate change, and the implications of a U.S. Administration that promotes climate skepticism, advancement of fossil fuels, an extractive economy, racism, bigotry and sexist oppression. We march to reject the rule of the fossil fuel industry and demand that the U.S. government immediately work toward a just transition to a renewable energy future. We stand as women for climate justice, and march for and demand full respect for climate science and immediate action on solutions to this global crisis. We want our children and all future generations to live in a healthy, just and thriving world. ****All diverse allies are invited to join us - this is an open coalition composed of many allies working collectively****
