Fighting the US-Mexico Border Wall
Rachel’s Network and the Sierra Club have partnered to draw the public’s attention to the landscapes and communities threatened by border walls, strengthen the coalition fighting these projects, and develop a legal strategy to resist further construction.
Tackling Antibiotic Misuse
Our strategic partnership with As You Sow leverages shareholder and investor advocacy to target large food companies and curb the overuse of antibiotics on farms.
To better document the health impacts of corporate manipulation of data, Rachel’s Network members have pledged $50,000 over two years to help University of California San Francisco’s (UCSF) Chemical Industry Documents Archive add over 40,000 documents on glyphosate.
Rachel’s Network members serve on the boards of organizations like Defenders of Wildlife, National Parks Conservation Association, NatureServe, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, Union of Concerned Scientists, Boys and Girls Club, Environmental Film Fest in the Nation’s Capital, International Fund for Animal Welfare, and many more. We help members like Kimberley reach their potential as funders, board members, and advocates through a board placement program, events, connections to experts, and discussion forums.
Women join Rachel’s Network for all kinds of reasons: for ideas, for support, for access to leading environmental thinkers. Member Elena Marszalek joined the Network in 2015 seeking peers and mentors to help her along her journey as Director of Del Mar Global Trust. We asked Elena about her experience with the Network.
