The Women’s Assembly for Climate Justice
On September 11, 2018, women climate activists from around the globe gathered in San Francisco for The Women’s Assembly for Climate Justice. The day-long assembly was organized by the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network International, known as WECAN. The Women’s Assembly was part of a week of actions, including the largest march for climate the West Coast has ever seen.
In this hour, we’ll be hearing stories and analysis from:
- Indigenous women from North America and the Ecuadorian Amazon,
- A poet from the Marshall Islands which are threatened by rising sea levels,
- A representative of the youth-led Sunrise Movement promoting a Green New Deal,
- Voices and chants from the streets of the Rise for Climate, Jobs and Justice March that filled SF with 30,000 marchers on Sept 8th, 2018.
- And more!
