Statement on Black Lives Matter

The statement below was published on all Wildlands Network social media accounts on Tuesday, June 2.

We condemn the generations of injustice faced by Black Americans resulting in the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others.

Wildlands Network works to reconnect, restore and rewild North America so that life—in all its diversity—can thrive. Our mission and our work is grounded in the belief that we must rethink the legal and social systems that impede nature. But our vision is expansive and relies on systemic change within and throughout human communities to reach a more just, equitable and inclusive future. We stand in solidarity with those seeking to challenge, disrupt and remedy the status quo of oppression.
