Women for Climate Justice Contingent at the Women's March in NYC

Meetup Time for the Climate Justice Contingent is 12pm!

Bring your banners, chants and lots of friends to join us as we walk to Trump Tower.

General Group Statement

On Saturday January 21, 2017, the day after the U.S. presidential inauguration, thousands of women will gather in Washington D.C. to stand up for our rights, our safety, our health, our families and our communities. A coalition of diverse organizations and individuals will unite and march as a 'Women for Climate Justice' contingent during the Women's March on Washington to stand for the health of our Earth and our global communities.

Throughout the country women and allies will be joining in local marches to carry the same message and here in NYC we expect a strong turn out. We invite all allies to join us in the Women for Climate Justice Contingent at the Women's March in NY.

We will be sending a clear message to the new U.S. Administration that, as women, many of whom stand on the frontlines of climate change across the U.S. and across the world, we are gravely concerned about the impacts of climate change, and the implications of a U.S. Administration that promotes climate skepticism, advancement of fossil fuels, an extractive economy, racism, bigotry and sexist oppression.

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.

Key Principles

All efforts in organizing for climate justice invoke a frontlines first principle where women most impacted by climate change/ environment, including indigenous women, women with disabilities, women of color, lead in terms of voice and key messages, equally represented in all aspects of decision-making and prioritized in terms of rally spaces and media spots.

Please spread the word to women who plan to march in NYC and share our NYC facebook event page. Invite your friends to join us!
