Statement of Solidarity with Anti-Racism
ClimateFast stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and all those fighting against systemic racism and police brutality in North America and around the world. We understand that there can be no climate justice without racial justice.
Leaders of the anti-racism movement are asking us to think about what a truly Just Recovery would look like. We know that the Covid-19 crisis, like the climate crisis, disproportionately impacts racialized and Indigenous peoples. We know that racialized and Indigenous peoples suffer disproportionately from poverty. The reasons for this must be recognized and addressed. In order to achieve a Just Recovery for all, we must commit ourselves to the work of dismantling white supremacy – in ourselves, in our organization, and in our society.
