“Dear Earth illuminates the critical voices of women in this moment of environmental crisis. Now, more than ever, we need bold action for our planet. Counter to the common doom and gloom narrative, Dear Earth inspires our hearts and minds through celebration, hope, and empowerment as we face the challenges of the Anthropocene.” – Catherine Game
