International advocates, grassroots, Indigenous, and frontline women leaders, and policy-makers, will discuss topics including the intersectionality of gender and environment; Indigenous rights; the just transition; women and forest protection and regeneration; fossil fuel resistance efforts; women and agro-ecology/soils; democracy; environmental racism; and women's leadership and calls for action within a climate justice framework.
This dynamic public Forum is being presented in parallel to the the Global Climate Action Summit in California. A list of key calls to action from Women For Climate Justice will be presented to the leadership of the GCAS the day after the Women's Assembly For Climate Justice!
Women, girls, and allies are invited to join a diverse coalition of women's groups, climate justice organizations, and others - to organize and march together as a part of 'RISE for Climate, Jobs and Justice'.
On September 8th, a 'Women For Climate Justice' contingent will take action at the march in San Francisco, California - and everyone is also encouraged to organize independently as 'Women for Climate Justice' in home regions across the U.S. and GLOBALLY!
