Bahia, Brazil (Sep. 7, 2016) – WEDO will attend the 13th AWID International Forum from 8-11 September 2016 in Costa do Sauípe, Bahia – Brazil. The AWID Forum aims to create a space for women’s rights and social justice activists to collaborate and re-imagine our feminist futures.
Especially at the critical point of the post-2015 development agenda, WEDO believes that reverting a catastrophic climate crisis requires deep systemic change, as well as strong climate and environmental justice work that places the sustainability of life, and economic and social justice at the core.

Upholding the false binary between climate and social inequality means upholding the social conditions that marginalize these voices and perspectives, denying us their deep insights, answers and powerful ability to inspire and transform.
Maria Alejandra Rodriguez Acha is Peruvian climate activist, anthropologist and Young Feminist Fellow at WEDO & FRIDA.
