Today and always, we must join together to fight for justice and equity. As a first step, pledge your commitment to fighting with us for environmental justice.
Right now, we are watching the living breath being taken from Black people, over and over again — in so many different ways. Communities of color are bearing the brunt of police brutality as well as the COVID crisis. And these same communities breathe significantly more air pollution than others. These are just a few examples of how our history of systemic racism have harmed Black people.
In honor of this Juneteenth, I am pledging to acknowledge this fact: We do not all breathe the same air. Until we do, we will not be able to live in a just, fair society.
