They call for action on climate and for renewed political integrity and accountability. Currently there are 24 community-supported independents running in the upcoming Federal election. 22 of them are women.

“We are at a unique point in human history. Due to the scientific genius of men and women, we can either on the one hand improve the standard and quality of life of all mankind or we can destroy the planet as we know it.”
