Women at the Frontlines of Climate Justice: Integrated Global Strategies
In many parts of the world, women are often the ones hardest hit by climate change's destructive effects, but they are also very often the ones taking the leading roles in the struggles to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Leaders from three of the most significant global networks on the frontlines of these efforts -- the Women's Earth and Climate Action Network, Indigenous Climate Action and the Climate Justice Alliance -- will share their inspiring stories about how women-led movements are doing cutting-edge organizing that advances climate stability, social justice, and gender and economic equity. Hosted by Anneke Campbell, author/activist. With: Eriel Tchekwie Deranger, Executive Director of Indigenous Climate Action; Osprey Orielle Lake, co-founder/ Executive Director of the Women's Earth and Climate Action Network; Tere Almaguer, Environmental Justice Organizer for PODER in San Francisco.
