Demand Congress address environmental racism

Environmental injustice addresses a statistical fact: people who live and work in America's most polluted environments are commonly people of color and the poor.

Communities of color are routinely targeted to host facilities that have negative environmental impacts, for example a landfill, dirty industrial plant or truck depot -- THIS is environmental racism. These places exist so that the rest of society can live a comfortable distance from the consequences of their consumptive lifestyles.

Stop Funding Putin's War

After years, war has, unfortunately, returned to Europe. War is an extremely difficult test for the attacked nation, but it is also a test for us, the nations living in the EU, because our actions may significantly influence how the war turns out.

Petition for the European Council

Support making ECOCIDE an international crime

We call on all governments to declare support for making ecocide an international crime, in the knowledge that many countries must stand together to put this law in place for the long-term protection of all life on Earth.
