Wisconsin’s Green Fire supports our conservation legacy by promoting science-based management of natural resources.
A Message About Justice from Wisconsin's Green Fire
We believe we can speak for all of us at Wisconsin’s Green Fire in stating our shared outrage and sadness over the killing of George Floyd by law enforcement in Minneapolis. The monumental response by citizens in overwhelmingly peaceful protests all over the country and the world has brought into relief, once again, the long and deep patterns of violence, injustice, and inequities that are especially faced by African Americans, Native Americans, and people of color in America.
The legacies of injustice and racism have affected conservation work in ways many of us may never have realized, in part because we may never have seen the people and opportunities that have simply been missing.
As individuals, and as an organization, we’re all challenged today to ask: what do these historic events mean for us, and what do they demand from us?
