On Friday, Feb. 17, Grammy award-winning music icon Faith Hill will be taking the stage with her daughter, Maggie McGraw, to share an important message: climate action cannot wait. The event will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City as part of the Global Engagement Summit, hosted by UNA-USA, which brings together hundreds of changemakers and policymakers each year.
McGraw is an emerging voice on global issues, with a master’s degree in sustainability from Stanford University and a passion for protecting the world’s oceans. Her expertise landed her on Capitol Hill, where she has supported legislation to advance environmental protection and other global issues.
This intergenerational dialogue will be moderated by another leading climate activist, Sophia Kianni, an Iranian-American activist and UN climate advisor. In 2020, Kianni founded Climate Cardinals to make climate resources more accessible to non-English speakers – a topic she explored in a January 2022 TED Talk, which has been viewed nearly two million times.
