On January 20, 2018 – many thousands of diverse women, families, organizations and allies will take action as part of the 2018 Women’s March, being held in cities across the U.S. and around the world.
We invite you to march with the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) and other women’s and climate justice organizations and allies as part of a ‘Women for Climate Justice Contingent’ at the San Fransisco Bay Area Women’s March.
**Allies who will be marching in other cities across the world are encouraged to independently organize and march with Women for Climate Justice messaging! Please see the #Women4ClimateJustice at the Women’s March TOOLKIT here to support you in your efforts:wecaninternational.org/news/1863/
WHY: We march and we vote! We will be sending a clear message to the U.S. Administration, and all governments and entities which threaten the Earth and our communities, that as women, many of whom stand on the frontlines of climate change, we are gravely concerned about the impacts of global warming, and the actions of a U.S. Administration that promotes climate skepticism, advancement of fossil fuels, an extractive economy, racism, bigotry and sexist oppression.
We march for climate justice, and to bring awareness to the importance of voting and other action to counter this climate-denying, fossil fuel industry driven administration, which is bringing even more hardship to frontline, Indigenous and low-income communities across the country and around the world.
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.
