Extinction Rebellion SEQ are creating a supportive space to unpack the socialised and institutionalised systems of racism which white people are taught not to recognise. It is a space to help us understand how we may unconsciously benefit from systems of racial oppression. These conversations will start to unpack privilege and explore ways of changing behaviours and stepping towards accountability.

This is a space that aims to break down barriers about the intersectionality of the climate crisis and the oppressive systems like racism. In doing so, we can start to learn to use systems of unearned advantage to weaken systems built on similar unearned advantage.

Disclaimer, the point of using the wording ¨white people¨ is to encourage the people who benefit from racism to be putting in the work to fix the issues. This is to reduce the emotional labour that First Nations people and People of Colour have to spend on the issue.
