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’ – the 2018 People’s Climate Movement March.
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 around the world!
This march is taking place in the context of years and decades of strategic organizing by many climate, Indigenous, labour, racial justice and other social and environmental justice movement leaders; and is being called in part in response to the Global Climate Action Summit, taking place in San Fransisco in September 2018.

As ‘Women for Climate Justice’ Contingents in San Francisco and around the world, we will be sending a clear message that as women, many of who stand on the frontlines of climate change across the U.S. and around the world, we are gravely concerned about the impacts of climate change, and the implications of Administrations and government officials that promote advancement of fossil fuels, extractive economies, climate skepticism, environmental racism, bigotry and inequitable treatment of women and frontline, Indigenous and marginalized communities. No to sacrifice zones! We will raise our voices to demonstrate women’s power to build just climate solutions – and take a stand for for all future generations to live in a healthy, just and thriving world.
