There’s no denying 2016 was a thorny year for women and the environment. But in the days following the election, we’ve seen a renewed interest in collective action across our network and in the larger society. In our 2016 Annual Report, you’ll learn how Rachel’s Network fills a vital role in the movement for a better world.
Using 2006-2015 data from the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Environmental Scorecard, Rachel’s Network found that women federal legislators vote for environmental protections more often than their male counterparts in both the House and Senate.
We are proud to announce the second Ashoka Fellow sponsored by Rachel’s Network: Angelou Ezeilo. Through her organization, the Greening Youth Foundation, Angelou is working to change the face of conservation in the United States and help young people of color find meaningful careers in conservation.
American Rivers’ Board of Trustees announced that Rachel’s Network Member Abigail Rome has joined the prominent conservation group’s board, effective immediately.
2015 was a transformative year for Rachel’s Network. We spent a large part of the year charting the future of the organization through our Vision 2020 strategic plan. We’re delighted that this plan confirms the values we cherish, and takes them to the next level with passion and purpose. We’re committed to putting our resources to work finding solutions to global challenges. Read our 2015 Annual Report to discover how.
