Rachel's Network

Named in honor of Rachel Carson, Rachel's Network is a community of women funders committed to a safer, healthier, and more just world for all. Philanthropy Women calls this non-profit organization “one of the most significant funding networks in the ecofeminist space.”

Current Network efforts include a broad range of initiatives:  minimizing toxic pesticide use,  fighting against the US-Mexico Border Wall in order to protect ecosystems and communities, supporting republican women legislators and reducing the GOP gender gap, and empowering rural women with access to leadership training and network building.  Their report When Women Lead shows that women legislators vote in favor of environmental protections more often than their male colleagues.
