Why We Should Listen:

Jane Fonda is a two-time Academy Award-winning actress (Best Actress in 1971 for Klute and in 1978 for Coming Home) and activist. Her career has spanned over 50 years, accumulating a body of film work that includes over 45 films and crucial work on political issues such as women's rights, Native American rights and the environment. She is a seven-time Golden Globe winner, Honorary Palme d'Or honoree, 2014 AFI Life Achievement Award winner, and the 2019 recipient of the Stanley Kubrick Excellence in Film Award as part of BAFTA's Britannia Awards. Fonda is currently in production for the seventh and final season of Grace and Frankie, which will be Netflix's longest-running original series. For her work on the series, she received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2017. She was last seen on the big screen in Paramount's comedy, Book Club, in which she starred alongside Diane Keaton, Mary Steenburgen and Candice Bergen. She also premiered Jane Fonda in Five Acts, a documentary for HBO chronicling her life and activism, at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. The documentary received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special in 2019.

Fonda celebrated her 80th birthday by raising 1 million dollars for each of her nonprofits, Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential, and The Women's Media Center. Currently, she is leading the charge on Fire Drill Fridays, a national movement to protest government inaction on climate change. Her latest book, What Can I Do? My Path From Climate Despair To Action details her personal journey with the movement and provides solutions for communities to combat the climate crisis.
