Sierra Club board resolution on situation in Ferguson, MO
The Sierra Club Board of Directors recently passed the following resolution about the tragedy in Ferguson, Mo.
Across the nation, Sierra Club staff and volunteers exercise their first amendment right to peacefully assemble and speak out to protect our air, water, land, and climate. Our work is successful when our supporters, members and partners have full access to our nation’s democracy and all lawful means to protect our environment.
Like the rest of the nation, we have watched the tragedy unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, and we feel moved to join the growing chorus speaking out against injustice and racial profiling. All Americans, including the Sierra Club’s 2.4 million members and supporters deserve the right to access all lawful means of peaceful assembly without fear.
