What does Stand.earth stand for in the age of Trump?
February 15, 2017
You may have noticed here at Stand.earth we’ve been talking a lot lately about issues that don’t directly relate to our climate-based campaigns. From emails to Facebook posts and tweets, we’ve been sharing articles and analyses about all sorts of issues — ranging from immigration to health care to LGBTQQIA2S+* to #BlackLivesMatter. There’s a reason for this.
We’re facing a severe human rights crisis.
The Trump administration is attacking people of color, immigrants, Muslims, undocumented peoples, women, people who identify as LGBTQQIA2S+*, indigenous communities, and more.
Government agencies tasked with protecting civil rights, gender equality, and indigenous protections are facing censorship and full blown internal witch hunts. The very fabric of our democracy is in question — as proven by the increasing willingness of the administration to break laws and violate the constitution in order to accomplish its goals.
