Sierra Club Statement Following the Murder of George Floyd

Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune and Kamau Wilkins, the Executive Committee Chair of the Sierra Club's Minnesota Chapter, issued the following statement on the murder of George Floyd. Over the course of the last 4 weeks, the Sierra Club has also issued statements condemning police brutality and the violent, racist killings of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor. In July of 2019, the Sierra Club joined forces with a coalition of environmental justice and national environmental groups to release a just and equitable national climate platform that centers racial, climate and environmental justice to improve the public health and well-being of all communities.

“We all deserve to thrive in safe communities, yet the inhumane, daily assaults on Black and Brown people directly threaten our ability to maintain a healthy planet. The cruel, public lynching of George Floyd is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We cannot expect to come together to protect the planet if racism continues to tear us apart.

“The Sierra Club is committed to confronting the inequality embedded into our society that has allowed these tragedies to persist. If we want to create communities that are truly safe, just and equitable, we must continue fighting for the humanity and the dignity of all people.“


Dallas Sierra Club General Meeting via Zoom - Tuesday, June 9

The June 9 General Meeting will be held online via Zoom, NOT at Brookhaven College.

Please join us for our Sierra Club June General Meeting, as we welcome a duo of speakers!

Logo for The Climate CollageFirst, Robin Allory, from The Climate Collage will discuss the goal of his organization: to increase environmental awareness through developmental and playful education. With games created for both young and old, this program takes on the important task of educating rather than lecturing.

Followed by nationally-known expert, author, radio host, and business woman, Andrea Ridout, who will discuss how everyday-environmentalists can effectively answer questions and field criticisms from skeptics as she discusses the most popular green tips.

Robin Allory, a French native, currently calls North Texas home as he tirelessly promotes the benefits of The Climate Collage. This groundbreaking group was developed by Cédric Ringerbach, Professor at the Permaculture University in France, to reach a broader environmental audience through play. Both young and old benefit from constructive play on the dangers and pitfalls of climate change.

Green Living PictureAndrea Ridout, nationally known expert on green living and home improvement, is the former host of Mother Earth News Radio and her own show, Ask Andrea. These days, she writes for GreenSource DFW and is also working on her second book -- about backyard chickens for Texas A&M Press. You can reach her at Andrea@AskAndrea.com.

From 6:45 to 7:00 p.m. you can log in to the meeting, chat, and ask questions. The meeting will begin at 7:00 with announcements, followed by our speakers' two presentations.
