Are you hungry for deeper dialogue about the climate crisis and building community around solutions?


We are too! That’s why we are offering an All We Can Save Circle – Like a book club, but a cooler, deeper, extended version. Let’s strengthen the “we” in All We Can Save!

All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis (edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine K. Wilkinson) is an anthology of writings by 60 women at the forefront of the climate movement who are harnessing truth, courage, and solutions to lead humanity forward. This Circle is offered to answer the call by All We Can Save for more leadership and participation in responding to our climate crisis. Circles were created by Dr. Katharine Wilkinson (www.allwecansave.earth).
