WECAN International is organizing and hosting Women’s Assembly for Climate Justice: Women Leading Solutions on the Frontlines of Climate Change on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 from 1:00 to 8:30 p.m. at The Green Room (second floor), 401 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco, CA. This event will also be available for allies worldwide via Facebook Livestream.
This will be “an extraordinary gathering of women leaders from across the United States and around the world, joined in solidarity to speak out against environmental and social injustice, draw attention to root causes of the climate crisis, and present the diverse array of visions and strategies with which they are working to shape a healthy and equitable world.”
“International advocates, grassroots, Indigenous, and frontline women leaders, and policy-makers, will discuss topics including the intersectionality of gender and environment; Indigenous rights; a just transition to renewable energy; women and forest protection and regeneration; fossil fuel resistance efforts; women and agroecology/soils; environmental racism; and women’s leadership and calls for action within a climate justice framework.”
This dynamic public Forum is to be presented the day before the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) in California. A list of collective key Calls to Action from the Women’s Assembly for Climate Justice will be presented to the leadership of the GCAS the following day.
Details and tools to share are available via the WECAN International webpage.
