CREATING A LEGACY OF CHANGE

Elders Climate Action is building a non-partisan movement of elders committed to making our voices heard.
We are determined to change our nation’s policies while there is still time to avoid catastrophic changes in the earth’s climate.
Because of this concern and because we vote consistently, elders are in a unique position to influence national policy.
We are committed to using our voices, our votes, and our collective power to push for policies and practices that will
reduce greenhouse gases to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet.

WITH GRIEF AND RAGE, ELDERS CLIMATE ACTION BEARS WITNESS TO THE SYSTEMIC RACISM ON DISPLAY IN THE DEATHS OF GEORGE FLOYD, BREONNA TAYLOR, AHMAUD ARBERY AND SO MANY BEFORE THEM. WE DENOUNCE THE BRUTALITY OF MILITARIZED POLICING AND CALL FOR STRONG COMMUNITY OVERSIGHT OF THOSE WHOSE DUTY IT IS TO PROTECT US. One of the primary motivations for addressing the climate crisis is the extent to which it contributes to racial and economic injustice, with roots in colonialism and oppression. The extraction economy has always viewed indigenous lands as assets to plunder and minority communities as suitable sites for waste and destruction, sacrificing black, brown and indigenous lives and all opportunities to prosper. This system is crushing our democracy. It is up to us to end this. Elders Climate Action commits to an anti-racist agenda, rooted in justice and equity. We recognize that the climate fight involves choices about whom to include, whom to protect. We will examine our work through a lens of justice to assure that we recognize and free ourselves of racist and exclusionary practices and indifference. We pledge to defend Black lives, to protect the oppressed and those whose voices are not heard. We will continue to demand love, truth, a habitable planet, and fundamental human rights for all. We will not stop until change fully comes.
