Thank you for attending the Badass Women in Green Awards!

This past Wednesday evening, CLCV honored the contributions of four incredible women making climate action possible: race car driver Leilani Mϋnter, Zero Hour founder Jamie Margolin, Silicon Valley Community Foundation CEO Nicole Taylor, and The 22 Fund Founder Tracy Gray at the Badass Women in Green Awards.

The event featured Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, Assemblymember Monique Limón and Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan who introduced our honorees on-stage and began with a powerful poem written and performed by spoken word artist Terisa Siagatonu. Terisa grounded the audience with a call for an intersectional environmental movement that centers the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and communities of color. Each honoree offered a glimmer of hope and inspiration to the crowd while reminding us of the fight we have ahead to protect our future and our planet.

This year’s event felt bigger and bolder than ever before as we raised over $250,650 to power our efforts for 2020. Over 200 CLCV supporters and friends from across the United States attended.

If you couldn’t join us, it’s not too late to contribute to our work today.

Your support is critical to our movement and will help us move the needle to ensure that we take on the deep pockets of Big Oil and other corporate polluters.

It’s been an extraordinary year for environmental action, and with the ongoing federal attacks on our progress, as well as the upcoming 2020 elections, we won’t stop fighting to make radical change happen.

Thank you for your support.

P.S. Check out the gallery of photos from the night and share with your friends!
