Women and Girls Advocacy


Our Mission

The Women and Girl’s Advocacy team of the UUCC Climate Crisis Committee works to reduce the effects of climate change by promoting justice for women and girls through policy, actions and direct aid.

Changing policy and supporting organizations dealing with women and girls’ issues can have a profound effect on reducing greenhouse gases that threaten our planet.

To learn more about the connection between justice and equity for women and girls and climate change read or listen to Women and Girls’ Issues Key to Reversing Climate Change, a Reflection by Phyllis Yigdall presented at the Climate Change as a Social Justice Issue Service. March 8, 2020.   Link to audio: Reflection for the Climate Change as a Social Justice Issue Service, March 8, 2020. Move the audio progress bar to 32:38 to begin.
