Supporting Women Environmental Leaders
At Rachel’s Network, we know that elevating women of color results in a healthier, safer, and more just world, and we are committed to investing in them. That’s why we created the Catalyst Award.
Fighting the Border Wall
Rachel’s Network joined the Texas Civil Rights Project, the Center for Biological Diversity, and the Sierra Club to draw the public’s attention to the landscapes and communities threatened by border walls, strengthen the coalition fighting these projects, and resist further construction in the courts.
Young people continue to be underrepresented in our democracy, and COVID-19 has severely curtailed traditional youth voter registration efforts. As a result, Student PIRGs’ New Voters Project is using digital tools to reach potential voters and providing the information they need to navigate the 2020 election and beyond. Rachel’s Network is providing Student PIRGs a grant to help enable this work.
In January 2020, Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), but the federal government refuses to enshrine it in the US Constitution. Rachel’s Network, along with founder Winsome McIntosh’s McIntosh Foundation, have filed a legal brief supporting three states in their lawsuit against the federal government for failing to uphold the ERA.
For 20 years, the women in our network have used their voices and resources to uplift other women and contribute to solutions. It’s gratifying to see what’s possible when we work together for positive change. Read our 2019 Annual Report here.
