Build personal resilience and find a network of support in this retreat for women on the front lines of environmental justice.

Dr. Mildred McClain reflects on lessons she’s learned in her environmental justice work.

Join one of the mothers of the environmental justice movement, Dr. Mildred McClain, as she shares wisdom and lessons from a lifetime of work. As she passes on her inimitable knowledge, Dr. McClain encourages the coming generation of justice leaders to be resilient and stay with the work until a change comes—to make a difference in their community and in the world.

Lovingly known to many as their “Mama Bahati,” Dr. McClain brings together multiple cultural traditions in her work and incorporates healing practices such as:

  • Silent contemplation

  • Walking meditation

  • Song and spoken word

For those who identify as women on the front lines for climate and environmental justice, this experience will restore and equip your spirit, help you build personal resilience, and strengthen your network of support.
