MOVEMENT SUPPORT: EQUITY & INCLUSION
This workgroup focuses on examining the ways that white privilege and subtle forms of racism, patriarchy, class, and other systemic oppressions are unintentionally embedded in the climate movement, and on challenging all in our organization to be better allies to communities most directly affected by climate change and the fossil fuel economy. We are in the process of moving forward org-wide strategies to meet specific attainable goals in four areas: diversifying our leadership, increasing education for leadership and our base, developing and implementing an equity lens and filter for all our work, and increasing our solidarity work with less obviously climate related justice issues. We welcome new members into our Solidarity Team!
To get oriented, check out:
- Assumptions about Racism and Undoing Racism Goals
- Principles for Environmental and Climate Justice (from our allies)
Along with looking closely at privilege, fragility, and subtle forms of systemic oppression within 350 Seattle and ourselves, we believe it’s important to be out there supporting those in our community who are working on intersecting justice issues.
