In 1999, the Marion Institute became Wangari's representative and partner with the Green Belt Movement in the United States – and has advocated for and raised funds for the Green Belt Movement. Maathai served on the Marion Institute Advisory Board and was the founder of the Green Belt Movement, an environmentalist, a civil society and women's rights activist, and a former parliamentarian. The Green Belt Movement is one of the most prominent women’s civil society organizations, based in Kenya, advocating for human rights and supporting good governance and peaceful democratic change through the protection of the environment. Its mission is to empower communities worldwide to protect the environment and to promote good governance and cultures of peace.
