Dear Friends,

As the northern hemisphere welcomes the vibrant renewal of spring, it’s a reminder of the boundless potential that lies within the seeds we sow—both literal and metaphorical. With each seed planted, we foster the growth of something magnificent, echoing our own efforts to create change across the globe.

This Earth Day, we reflect on the urgent and ongoing work for climate justice—a cause that stands as the greatest challenge of our time. The recent synthesis of findings by the IPCC is unequivocal: act now or face irreversible damage. This decade is pivotal; we have less than six years to meet critical targets under the Paris Agreement to keep temperature rise under 1.5°C. The evidence is clear that women, disproportionately affected by climate crises, are indispensable to driving the necessary change.

In our work at Women’s Earth Alliance, we’ve seen the transformative power of women’s leadership in addressing the climate crisis. Below you will read about our growing work around the world, from the U.S. to Mexico to Kenya and beyond—where grassroots women leaders are bringing their insights, resolve, and practical solutions.

Our partnerships amplify this mission. Together with groups like L'Oréal Paris, which has committed millions to accelerate women-led environmental projects, we’re bridging critical resource gaps and enhancing the visibility of grassroots solutions. These efforts bolster our robust network, ensuring that our collective impact extends across tens of thousands of communities worldwide

Yet, individual action remains vital. Each of us holds the power to initiate change. From a mother in Kakamega, Kenya, who starts a nursery that revitalizes the rainforest ecosystem, to women leaders advocating for policy reforms at global conferences, the ripple effects of these actions are profound.

This Earth Day, we invite you to join the Seed Bank—WEA’s community of monthly givers—and step alongside WEA and the 52,000 women leaders in our global alliance who have planted seeds for change and are transforming communities around the world. Together with your steady drumbeat of support, we will continue growing climate solutions that ensure a healthy, just and thriving future.

Let’s celebrate the progress we've made while acknowledging the work that lies ahead. Let’s make climate justice personal. Let’s talk about it, center it in our activism, and integrate it into our community efforts.

Thank you for standing with us in this critical movement. Your action today is the promise of a beautiful tomorrow. 

With gratitude,

Melinda Kramer, Kahea Pacheco and Amira Diamond
WEA Co-Directors
