We now relish that fact that People of color are not inevitably victims; they are valued leaders.

We once fatalistically asserted that “Poor minorities in urban areas and indigenous communities in the hinterlands often become the victims of hazardous wastes and other contamination. That is because they have yet to develop the economic power, political standing or environmental leadership capacity that will keep bad things from happening in their midsts.”

We now relish that fact that “People of color are not inevitably victims; they are valued leaders in and essential to our broader society’s efforts to care for creation. That is because they so deeply express their sacred duty to integrate social justice and environmental quality issues to ensure the well-being of their families and communities for the next seven generations, and for all of humankind.”
