About 1planet

WHO we are

We are a nonprofit climate advocacy organization and part of the Virginia Conservation Network. Our members act collectively in small and big ways to address the climate crisis and protect the environment. We are women who put policy-makers and politicians on notice by speaking out, organizing, advocating and VOTING for climate change solutions. #creatingclimatevoters


After the 2016 election, we were alarmed to see an assault on science, denial of climate change, and the U.S. say they will pull out of the Paris Climate Treaty. The environment, public lands, and public health, are increasingly 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 – now more than ever.  For the sake of future generations and ourselves, we are fiercely determined to take care of our one planet.  And, together, we will.
