Sierra Club on Crime

 

 


Black Lives Matter: equal protection under the law

It is impossible not to be outraged by the devastating images of black people being gunned down by police on a shockingly regular basis and it should be impossible to remain silent in the face of this sustained injustice any longer.

The Sierra Club believes all people deserve safe communities. That means all people deserve equal protection under the law and a life free of discrimination, hatred and violence.

Unfortunately those aspirations and goals are not a reality in our country, and that is why the Sierra Club stands in solidarity with all those who say #BlackLivesMatter, demanding justice, accountability and action to confront the racism and inequality that has allowed these tragedies to exist. We can do better and by standing together to work for the changes that are needed, we will.
