1planet Mission

Our mission is to create and activate climate voters. We will put policy-makers and politicians on notice that we will speak out, organize, advocate and VOTE for climate change solutions at the local, state and federal levels.

take action

Women across the country are becoming more politically engaged and are determined to effect change in their homes, their local communities, at the ballot box, and in the halls of government. There are no quick fixes when it comes to the climate crisis. Fighting climate change and reducing carbon emissions will require sacrifice — small changes at home AND big changes at the policy level. Join us and get informed, get organized, get involved, and get out and VOTE!

our story

After the 2016 election, we felt compelled to do something about the growing threat to the environment brought on by the unraveling of protections, and the unwillingness to act on the urgent climate crisis. We decided to link arms with other women who feel the same way. Women are a powerful and unstoppable force when we come together. We are fiercely determined to take care of our one planet for ourselves and for future generations.  And, together, we will.

Rising — Dispatches from the New American Shore, by Elizabeth Rush.

Hailed as “deeply felt” (New York Times), “a revelation” (Pacific Standard), and “the book on climate change and sea levels that was missing” (Chicago Tribune), Rising is both a highly original work of lyric reportage and a haunting meditation on how to let go of the places we love.

With every passing day, and every record-breaking hurricane, it grows clearer that climate change is neither imagined nor distant—and that rising seas are transforming the coastline of the United States in irrevocable ways. In Rising, Elizabeth Rush guides readers through some of the places where this change has been most dramatic, from the Gulf Coast to Miami, and from New York City to the Bay Area. For many of the plants, animals, and humans in these places, the options are stark: retreat or perish in place.
