The climate, public health, economic, democratic, and racial crises we are living in are intertwined, rooted in systemic injustice. This is not a coincidence. There is a concentration of power and wealth amongst a tiny elite that does not invest in or care about public education, public health, equal opportunity, or equal rights but rather amasses more power as they justify inequities and oppression in America and worldwide.
This is a time for reckoning and change. Racism must be dismantled. Black Lives Matter. We all must center equity and justice in all our work. We all must strive for liberation and equity for all vulnerable, marginalized, and underrepresented communities.
“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” — Lilla Watson
We can all be part of the solution. Together we can demand change and a new era where we end the climate crisis by centering racial and economic justice. As part of our commitment, ecoAmerica has signed the Vision for Equitable Climate Action. Please consider signing this and supporting organizations focused on justice.
