Tap into the fierce spirit of women and join us at the 2017 Women’s Congress for Future Generations as we explore the intersections of climate, health, and environmental justice!
The Women’s Congress will work to live out what Martin Luther King, Jr. described as the Beloved Community. We tap into the fierce spirit of women to protect and defend what we love. We support people stepping into their collective power to use laws, policies, and norms to transition to a just and sustainable world
At the 2017 conference we aim:
- To educate ourselves about environmental justice
- To inform ourselves on how systems and institutions often sustain environmental injustice
- To bear witness to communities of color who are hit hardest by climate change and pollution
- To use the power we have, collectively, to create more just systems as a response to what we have witnessed
We will hear from nationally recognized experts on climate change and from women working in communities impacted by groundwater contamination, pipelines, and toxins in our homes. We will reimagine how together we can disrupt the systems that are supporting racial, social and environmental injustice, creating a just transition to a healthy future and writing a new story where everyone is valued and Mother Earth is held sacred.
Featured speakers include Vien Truong (Dream Corps and Green for All), Carolyn Raffensperger (Science and Environmental Health Network), and Dr. Dorceta Taylor (University of Michigan).
