The team at Utah Clean Energy is reeling from the events of the past weeks, and we feel it is incumbent on all of us to use our voices to affirm that Black lives matter. It is not enough to treat the symptoms of racism, but rather we must address the systemic cause of these injustices. This means listening to and learning from the experiences of people of color, speaking out against oppression, and openly recognizing that we all have a role in these injustices, and we must work to end them.
Utah Clean Energy is looking inward to ensure we are working in a way that does not exacerbate or tolerate injustice. There is much for us to learn and act upon. To that end, we would like to share with you a few of the resources that our team has found helpful as a first of many steps toward transformative change. The first is an article from President Barack Obama, How to Make this Moment the Turning Point for Real Change. We also found these insights and recommendations from our friends at Salt Lake City's Calvary Baptist Church particularly helpful as we consider what comes next.
Utah Clean Energy stands in solidarity with those demanding justice for George Floyd and the countless other victims of racism and police brutality. We stand with you!
