Sisters on the Planet Action Guide
Four inspirational women and the fight against climate change

Climate change is already having a disproportionate impact on poor people in the US and abroad, and it's hitting women hardest.

These are stories of inspiration, of hope, and of the power of people to bring about change. Sahena, Sharon, Muriel, and Martina might have very different lives, but what they share is a certainty that progress only comes about when you stand up and make your voice heard.
