Kentucky Waterways Alliance stands in solidarity with Black communities demanding justice for the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the countless others whose lives have been taken by police and vigilante violence. We see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.
All people have a right to life and liberty and health. Black communities and communities of color bear a disproportionate burden from pollution and other environmental harms because racial oppression has never ended in America. KWA commits here to addressing issues of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion within our organization. We will listen, learn, and take action as we work collectively toward a more just and equitable society.
