Saving Life on Earth: A Discussion on Justice, Race, Solidarity and the Environment
Date and time:
June 11, 2020 at 4 p.m.
Center for Biological Diversity
The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many more has sparked a long-needed reckoning over personal and systemic racism, police violence and inequality in America.
Our next Saving Life on Earth webinar will discuss justice, police brutality, diversity and biodiversity, and the importance of aligning the environmental movement with the struggle against racism and police violence.
The presentation will include Kierán Suckling, executive director of the Center for Biological Diversity, and Jean Su, director of the Center’s Energy Justice program.
The racist ideologies that underlie systemic brutality are the same ones that fuel income and health care inequality, poorer housing and education, mistreatment of workers, and air and water pollution in our most vulnerable communities. They also hold back the environmental movement – the fight to save species, wild places and the planet – by suppressing critical voices.
These are not problems for someone else to solve. We have a responsibility personally and institutionally to help create lasting change.
