"Sustainability is another word for justice, for what is just is sustainable, and what is unjust is not." –Matthew Fox. Quote painted on the Sustainability Academy at Lawrence Barnes in Burlington, VT.
Shelburne Farms joins with all those who support the family of George Floyd as they grieve his death, and with every person and family who has ever suffered unjustly. We stand with all those who are putting themselves at risk to peacefully gather and protest systemic racism. Organizations dedicated to sustainability — especially those that are predominantly white — have a deep responsibility to help dismantle racial injustice. We join with every individual and institution that seeks to use their power and privilege to create a free, and democratic society, and a healthy and just world for all.
