Algalita stands in solidarity with Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) who are fighting for equity and human rights across the globe. We strongly condemn the violence inflicted on Black communities and stand in solidarity with those demanding an end to systemic injustices by our police, criminal justice, and prison systems.
Environmental and social injustices are inextricably connected. In the United States and across the world, the largest burden of pollution falls upon communities of color. We know that pollution is not simply the result of “broken systems”, but the result of unjust systems that must be changed for the good of all people.
As an organization that works to empower young people to think critically and act as agents for long-lasting change, Algalita will continue to teach how fighting structural racism is integral to the mission of our movement. We are committed to utilizing our platforms responsibly and proactively, integrating education that awakens those to the unjust systems affecting the BIPOC community and we pledge to redouble our efforts to embed racial equity into everything we do.
Algalita is proud to be a member of Break Free From Plastic, a global movement comprised of 2,000+ members fighting for justice across the entire plastics supply chain. We believe that Social, Racial, and Environmental Justice are all part of a single, globally-connected movement. Together we raise our voices around the world with one unified message: Black Lives Matter.
