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, new in 2019.

Fighting the Border Wall

Rachel’s Network joined the Texas Civil Rights Project 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.
