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.
EARTHDAY.ORG president and environmental advocate Kathleen Rogers has joined the nonprofit funders’ network Rachel’s Network as a liaison. Under Kathleen’s leadership, EARTHDAY.ORG has grown into a global policy and activist organization with an international staff engaging the public on issues like climate change, conservation, pollution, and more.
Our founders chose Rachel as our namesake 20 years ago because they knew women and women’s environmental leadership continued to be obscured and diminished. Those founders gave us a mission: to promote women as impassioned leaders and agents of change dedicated to the stewardship of the earth. We take that mission seriously.

Native organizers in Minnesota are leading on-the-ground resistance to urge President Biden to revoke permits and halt construction, provide legal support to water protectors, and communicate the threat posed by Line 3. Rachel’s Network provided a grant through the Equation Campaign to support the coalition.
