350.org supports the Movement For Black Lives’ BREATHE Act

Washington, DC – Last week, the Movement for Black Lives announced the BREATHE Act, a vision for policy aimed at divesting from incarceration, policing, and fossil fuels, and investing in self-determination for Black communities and equity for all. In response, 350.org Associate Director of U.S. Policy Natalie Mebane issued the following statement:

“The Movement for Black Lives has been leading the way in holding the policing and criminal justice system in this country accountable. Though there is no easy solution to the decades of abuse from policing in this country, the BREATHE Act is a much needed step in the right direction. We are happy to support the bill summary that has been introduced and we are eagerly anticipating the final release of the bill language. We cannot tackle the climate crisis without dismantling racist systems.”
