From November 6 to 18, 2022, 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), or COP27 took place in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, and RLS NYC was there along with a larger delegation of Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung to follow and participate in the negotiations.

RLS NYC partnered with MADRE in supporting a delegation of Indigenous women leaders from the Maasai communities in Kenya–Esther Sakari, Faith Nataya, Lucy Lemiso, Naiyan Kiplagat–and Tanzania–Mboda Laizer and Sarah Ngulupa.

The goal of this ongoing collaboration with MADRE is to amplify the voices of indigenous women in a critical spaces by supporting the participation of grassroots activists in international policy-making and highlighting the rights and contributions of Indigenous peoples.
