Women’s Rights, Climate Activists Launch Feminist Agenda for Green New Deal

Feminist climate justice activists introduce collective feminist demands for Green New Deal policies, programs the day after UN Climate Summit

WASHINGTON - WHAT: In response to the UN Climate Summit, climate justice and women’s rights activists will introduce collective feminist demands to guide and advance the Green New Deal.

WHEN: Tuesday September 24th 6:45-8:00 pm EST.

WHERE: 777 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY 1001, United Nations Church Center in New York City. RSVP here

WHO: The coalition represents a wide range of organizations working on climate, environmental, immigrant, racial, economic, and gender justice, including the Sierra Club, the Women’s Environment and Development Organization, the NAACP, MADRE, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, and the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network, among others.

WHY: As New York’s Climate Week brings attention to the climate crisis and interest in the U.S. Green New Deal Resolution grows all over the country, the coalition’s campaign aims to ensure that gender and global justice, climate justice, and human rights are at the core of climate programs and policies. The coalition’s Feminist Green New Deal campaign will continue through the fall, with Congressional office visits later this week and a policy agenda scheduled for a Fall release.
