USSEE Stands with Protesters

The United States Society for Ecological Economics seeks to advance a just and sustainable society. Recent events have demonstrated once again that structural racism persists in our national economy and throughout our society, and it remains a barrier to the just and sustainable society we seek. Furthermore, longstanding institutional racism and inequality have been exposed and laid bare during the covid-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately affected communities of color. To that end, USSEE stands in solidarity with protesters in cities and towns across this nation, and we support the Black Lives Matter movement. We choose to align our organization with partners and friends in ways that serve and support humanity, particularly those communities that have been further marginalized or harmed by recent events. As a professional society, we seek to understand our world and better human lives, and we are committed to advancing economic, social, and environmental justice for all communities.
