Actress Sharon Lawrence (NYPD Blue, Shameless, Desperate Housewives) isn't just an on-screen performer. She's also a citizen who isn’t afraid to speak out about climate change. After growing up in Girl Scouts, listening to Meryl Streep, and joining PADI she put herself on the forefront of the battle against environmental issues. Now a dedicated activist, she shares her ideas on how to support women empowerment, why Hollywood RV trailers need solar panels, and why scientific research could benefit from more holidays.

LESSONS FROM SHARON:
We're all connected - so we need to care.
Take risks. Even if it doesn't work, something else might come up. Who knows? You might just inspire someone else
Making a change is a group effort. That’s why it’s important to educate others, and spread awareness.
We should try to open minds while opening hearts
- Support what excites you. Help give a voice to someone who can help solve these problems.
