Colored drawing depicting the relationship between women of color and the earth.

Description

A piece highlighting Climate Justice that draws attention to the harmful impacts that resource extraction and big agriculture have on indigenous land.  In underdeveloped and indigenous communities, women are stewards of the land and are most impacted by the effects of climate change and these practices.  This piece is meant to show how the women in these communities are being drained of their vitality, as the center focal point is a woman in the form of a tree of life.
