Actor and activist Jane Fonda has redefined herself again and again. Born into Hollywood royalty, she’s been an acclaimed actor, a fitness guru, an anti war activist, and in her 70s and 80’s a comedic partner to actor Lily Tomlin in the Netflix series Frankie & Grace. Now, at 84, she’s out on the campaign trail fighting to support candidates working to defeat supporters of the fossil fuels industry. In early 2022, she founded the Jane Fonda Climate PAC – endorsing climate champions at all levels of government. Fonda is also the author of What Can I Do: My Path from Climate Despair to Climate Action.
