The Sebastopol Grange and the Social Prophet Choir of Sebastopol, CA, welcomes Women’s Earth Alliance Founders, Melinda Kramer and Amira Diamond, to share about the work of this organization that equips grassroots women leaders with the skills and tools they need to protect our earth and strengthen communities from the inside out.

What happens in the world when you equip grassroots women leaders with the skills and tools they need to transform their communities from the inside out? We will hear stories shared from WEA co-founders about what is happening across the globe through the Women’s Earth Alliance.

WEA believes that when women thrive, the Earth thrives. Since 2006, WEA has equipped grassroots women leaders with the skills and tools they need to protect our earth and strengthen communities from the inside out. In some of the most environmentally threatened regions, WEA leaders are saving indigenous seeds, selling clean cookstoves, launching sustainable farms, providing safe water, protecting land rights, and more. With local leadership guiding each project, WEA designs capacity-building trainings where women access skills and tools in appropriate technology, entrepreneurship, and leadership. They gain seed funding, mentorship, and a global alliance. With these resources in hand, participants go on to launch and grow their own environmental projects and teach others to do the same.
