Racial Justice and Racial Equity

For 30 years, RAN has fought to preserve forests, protect the climate and uphold human rights. Fighting against systemic injustice and partnering with communities on the frontlines of these efforts have been core values at RAN since its founding in 1985.


Challenging racial injustice and racial inequity falls directly in line with our mission, vision and values. We cannot fulfill our mission, achieve our vision, or embody our values if we do not actively address this fundamental  system of oppression that informs every aspect of society.

We maintain that neutrality not an option. We must address the issue of racial inequity directly to avoid perpetuating unjust systems while we try to solve equally pressing — and intrinsically connected — issues such as stopping climate change, transitioning to a clean energy economy or preserving critical ecosystems.
