OxFoE support for the Black Lives Matter movement
Oxford Friends of the Earth stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We, like so many people around the world, are outraged and horrified by the killing of George Floyd in the US and all others who have been killed, attacked, or unfairly treated as a result of systemic racism.
We are an environmental organisation and social justice is directly linked to our aims and our work. The environmental movement has been weak on tackling racism and promoting diversity. This is a moment in history when we are all being called upon to do better: to understand the problems, and to learn and commit to taking action for equality and justice – to improve lives and improve the world.
Our full statement is here. As part of our work we are developing guidance and resources on environmental justice. These will be added to the page.
