During the week in 2018 of California Governor Jerry Brown’s Global Climate Action Summit, women took to the streets to let attendees at the summit know they don’t want Brown’s policies, including cap and trade. Indigenous women made their views known in a powerful way. As the climate emergency on Earth becomes more critical, California Governor Jerry Brown called for a Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. Women took to the streets in the thousands to tell him, and the summit attendees, that policies like cap and trade are making the climate crisis worse. Brown is a big advocate of cap and trade. Indigenous women activists spoke their truth and expressed their vision powerfully and passionately at the Women’s Assembly organized by the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network.
