Intersections: Racism, Colonialism, and Conservation
Time & Location
About the Event
For too long, approaches to conservation have denied and enforced oppression. We are called now to the work of dismantling structures of oppression in our conservation organizations and individual relationships. This is often painful and uncomfortable work. While we continue to learn more about how racism and colonialism intersect with conservation, many of us have begun to notice the severity and extent of the problem – yet no consensus has emerged on how to dismantle domination. Arriving at a plan will require the contribution and investment of all of us concerned with conservation. This work is of paramount importance, and none of us can do it alone.
The video conference we are hosting on July 8, 2020 from 3pm to 4pm Eastern Daylight Time is an invitation to share with one another our experiences, understandings, and ideas for where we go from here concerning the intersections of racism, colonialism and conservation. It aids us all in the the goal to continually learn and adapt, and reach for the accountability that community and conversation makes possible. Together we can support one another into the work that must be done.
