This week Benita and Debby talk about the young women and girls in moving the discussion of climate change forward.  Autumn Peltier, Greta Thunberg, and Artemisa Xakriaba are all relentlessly pursuing climate justice and showing us how it’s done.

Call to Action

Make small changes yourself (eat less meat, bring your own bags for shopping)

Discuss and support these young women
