There is no climate justice without racial justice

We support the movement for black lives. We as individuals have joined and will continue to join the protesters on the streets demanding an end to police violence and systemic racism.

Racial equity and environmental justice are not separate issues. The fallout from climate change will disproportionately impact people of color and those marginalized in our communities, just as they are disproportionately affected by the lethal threats of police violence, a broken justice system, Covid-19, and economic devastation.

Extinction Rebellion is committed to non-violent direct action, because we believe that it is the best way to bring about swift and fundamental change. As such, we stand in solidarity with all protesters fighting to end systemic racism in every form.
