We stand at a moment in time where we are witnessing clear threats to our environment and our social structures. It is a moment that demands action, whether that be action to defend our civil liberties, our rights to security, our rights as women, or simply the planet. Women are at the forefront of resistance to these threats.

As many of you know, by the time you read this note I will no longer be Executive Director. I will remain involved in the conservation movement as long as I am able – putting my energy toward defending nature, moving off a carbon-based economy and reminding people that their health is directly linked to a healthy environment. I thank you for your confidence in Sierra Club BC, and please continue to support the good work we do.
