Indigenous Women Speak Their Truth On The Climate Crisis

The climate emergency on Earth has become critical.  So when California Governor Jerry Brown called for a Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, Sept, 12-14 2018, people took to the streets to let the governor and attendees at the summit know they don’t want inadequate or false climate solutions, including cap and trade. Women, including frontline and Indigenous women activists, also made their views known in a powerful way at the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) International’s, ‘Women’s Assembly For Climate Justice’, which was held in parallel to the summit.
