Together We Rise: The Power of Female Leadership to Help Solve the Climate Crisis

What we do or fail to do right now will affect generations to come. This is the moment to embrace collaboration, compassion and community – qualities of women’s leadership which have been missing at decision-making tables worldwide.

Inspired by the recent collection of essays in “All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions to the Climate Crisis,” the event will celebrate and amplify the voices and approaches of women and their allies leading the climate movement. The only way we rise is together.

The event was co-hosted by youth activist leaders Xiye Bastida, Jerome Foster II, and Alexandria Villaseñor, for an illuminating and intergenerational evening featuring:

  • Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States; Founder, Climate Reality Project
