This is a call to everyone in our community of sustainable events to take an urgent step up in solidarity with the #blacklivesmatter movement and with Black, Indigenous + POC communities impacted daily and historically by both social and environmental injustice.

Echoing @toritsui_, if our climate activism isn’t intersectional, it’s essentially activism for the privileged few – which in many instances is white privilege. Social justice isn’t an optional “add-on” to sustainability. 

On Tuesday 2nd of June we are disconnecting from work to research, get uncomfortable, educate, connect and reflect on what purposeful steps we can take as promoters of change and as society to fight for equality, justice and inclusion. 

Silence isn’t an option. Speak up!
Take action. Support the blackout Tuesday.
