About the event
The proposed Green New Deal has sparked an important, overdue national conversation around the urgent work needed to confront the global climate crisis. Climate breakdown disproportionately impacts women, girls, gender non-conforming and LGBTIQ people in the US and globally. It deepens inequalities felt by frontline communities - including people of color, Black and Indigenous Peoples, and people with disabilities.
In this important moment, a collective of critical feminist and climate justice voices are coming together to seize the valuable opportunity presented by the Green New Deal. These advocates have created a set of principles to ensure rights-based approaches that redress these climate injustices, address the root causes of climate change, and recognize the global implications of US climate action and inaction.
During the event, feminist advocates will present key principles for a Feminist Agenda for the Green New Deal guided by justice and accountability, centered on frontline communities, and that reflects feminist values and upholds human rights.
