Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that we are on the traditional land of the Lenape People. While a land acknowledgement is not enough, it is an important social justice and decolonial practice that promotes idigenous visibility. Let this land acknowledgement be an opening for all of us to contemplate the ways in which climate change continues to exacerbate the violent legacies of colonialism and capitalism.
