Indigenous Alaskan Women Raise the Climate Sign

After speaking about the impacts of climate change in the Arctic, these indigenous Alaskan women raised the #climatesign, calling for swift climate action. The women talked about the profound effects of climate change on Alaska Natives, including the melting of permafrost, which has caused homes to sink into the ground. Additionally, they spoke about the melting of sea ice, which has negatively affected seals, walruses, narwhales, and polar bears. The women urged event attendees to unite for climate action, and protect vulnerable human and animal populations across the globe.
