About 1planet
 

WHO we are

We are a nonprofit advocacy organization whose members act collectively in small and big ways to address climate change and protect the environment. We are women who will put policy-makers and politicians on notice that we will speak out, organize, advocate and VOTE for climate change solutions. 

WHAT INSPIRES US

After the 2016 election, we were alarmed to see an assault on science, denial of climate change, and the U.S. pull out of the Paris Climate Treaty. The environment, our public lands, and even public health, are threatened.

Determined not to resign ourselves to a future of environmental degradation or inaction on climate change, we felt compelled to do something. Rather than act alone, we decided to link arms with other women who feel the same way. Women are a powerful and unstoppable force when we come together. 

Not only for ourselves, but for the sake of future generations, we must take care of our 1Planet.

what we Support

  • We support legislative efforts to address climate change.

  • We support the protection of the environment and public land.
  • We support corporations and private interests who demonstrate a significant commitment to addressing climate change.
