In this piece for Sierra, Hop Hopkins writes about "a long-overdue realization" that is growing in the environmental movement. He writes, "It goes something like this: 'We’ll never stop climate change without ending white supremacy.' This argument has entered the outdoor recreation and conservation space thanks to the leadership of Black, Indigenous, and other people of color in the climate justice movement. The idea has taken on new force as folks in the mainstream environmental movement do our best to show up for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and all the Black people still living and subject to police violence."
