We commit, as an organization, community members, and individuals to do more to fight racial injustice. It is time to turn the lens on ourselves to truly change the narrative. We all need to do the work to really understand how we can be part of a solution. There are myriad resources for education and participation – read, watch, donate, protest, learn. Until we all address anti-Blackness, structural violence, institutional racism, and white supremacy, we can’t live sustainably. We won’t make progress on the climate crisis and environmental conservation without humanity intact.
To start, we will read and share resources related to racial injustice and how it connects to environmental injustice, and we ask for your recommendations. ACFF will continue to work harder than ever to amplify diverse voices through engaging, inspiring, and informative conservation-focused films.
How we best show up for and support Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in our communities and organization is an ongoing mandate. This is a statement of support and a commitment to more action. We will continue to share and update our resources and organizational actions on this page.
