As 2016 comes to a close, we must all face the fierce urgency of now, and the uncertain times and compounding crises that affect both people and the planet. There is no time to waste. At WEDO, we are planning to redouble our efforts. We will stand tall for action on climate change and women’s rights and demand justice.
WEDO needs your support to continue its work – supporting women’s leadership and women’s participation and making sure governments take action on their commitments. As we embark on the year ahead, renew your commitment to rights and justice. Invest in WEDO, invest in women’s leadership, and invest in a future that centers on protecting people and the planet.

1) If within your means, make a financial contribution to WEDO’s work. $30, $300, $3000 — it all helps! Better yet, make it a monthly contribution to ensure we can continue to build and enhance our work throughout 2017!
