The Climate Movement is Growing (Post by Jewel Tomasula)
Led by young people across the world, climate activism reached an all time high on Friday September 20th with the global #ClimateStrike. The movement will keep growing.
This week, we are continuing to act on climate across the globe. Protests, marches, strikes, peaceful civil disobedience, and other organized actions are important tactics for changing what is politically possible and creating, then sustaining, pressure to enact bold climate policies and solutions.
We hope you to engage in climate activism this week, in whatever way empowers you and makes you feel courageous.
Here are some ways that women in STEM can help keep the momentum going in the climate movement:
Anyone can volunteer to organize an action on Earth Day 2020
Private industry workers can hold companies accountable for climate impacts, like Amazon Employees for Climate Justice
Those of us in academic institutions should hold universities accountable for fossil fuel investments.
