3rd Women's Congress


  • Earle Brown Heritage Center 6155 Earle Brown Drive Brooklyn Center, MN, 55430 United States (map)

The Women’s Congress will work to live out what Martin Luther King, Jr. described as the Beloved Community. We tap into the fierce spirit of women to protect and defend what we love. We support people stepping into their collective power to use laws, policies, and norms to transition to a just and sustainable world. At the 2017 conference we aim: 

● To educate ourselves about environmental justice
● To inform ourselves on how systems and institutions often sustain environmental injustice
● To bear witness to communities of color who are hit hardest by climate change and pollution
● To use the power we have, collectively, to create more just systems as a response to what we have witnessed

We recognize that many of our sisters and brothers are most affected and that statistics on human health problems such as autism, lead poisoning, breast cancer are indicators of suffering. Many of these problems are preventable and if preventable we have a moral obligation to prevent them. 

We stand with our sisters, wherever we have environmental injustice, to protect the children and grandchildren, the children of our neighbors and our neighbors’ neighbors. Women of all walks of life are coming together, standing together, for justice. We will intervene, using our fierce and loving spirit, to create a world where future generations of all species will thrive. 

---

We will hear from nationally recognized experts on climate change and from women working in communities impacted by groundwater contamination, pipelines, and toxins in our homes. We will reimagine how together we can disrupt the systems that are supporting racial, social and environmental injustice, creating a just transition to a healthy future and writing a new story where everyone is valued and Mother Earth is held sacred.
