NERACOOS Statement of Solidarity

As we’ve witnessed the events of the past six weeks, it has become clear that we, as an organization, have work to do. This extraordinary moment fills us with hope that justice and equity for people of color are finally within reach. The Northeastern United States is home to a number of communities of color across our varied coastal zone. These communities’ voices are crucial to making sound decisions about how best to utilize ocean resources and adapt to change.
