Take Action for Women and Climate
Have you heard? Representative Barbara Lee from California re-introduced a resolution recognizing the disparate impact of climate disruption on women and the efforts of women globally to address climate change.
The links between gender and climate are rarely recognized on Capitol Hill, and only 11 congresswomen and men have co-signed the resolution thus far -- ask your representative to do the same!
