WECAN: Female Advocates of Climate Justice

Women advocated for climate justice with a day of action on February 14th 2014. A group known as WECAN (Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network) took action for mother Earth and climate justice in collaboration with One Billion Rising for Justice. Leading up to and on February 14th WECAN's members documented women-led solutions, testimonies and successes in the field of environmental and climate justice throughout the world.

While the One Billion Rising for Justice Campaign is addressing many aspects of women and justice, WECAN focused specifically on women and climate justice. The Day of Action was dedicated to the signing of WECAN’s Declaration, “Women of the World Call for Urgent Action on Climate Change & Sustainability Solutions”. Click here to see the declaration.
