Dakota Jones on their news blog as follow up to an event they held that went sideways a few month ago:

But good intentions don’t automatically translate into good impacts. By stepping into a leadership role in the world of climate action, we at Footprints are taking on a huge responsibility to the people who are impacted by climate change. And the unfortunate reality is that although everyone is or will be impacted by climate change, the impacts are extremely unequal. Indeed, the ways climate change impacts certain groups of people over others are closely related to the ways our societies value certain groups of people over others. This complex history and its impacts affect people every day in ways that are not immediately obvious to people like Dakota and Nate, who run Footprints, because we are white men. Despite our best intentions, we didn’t have the education required to provide a safe, inclusive, and diverse experience to all of our participants.

It’s good to get the full scope of what went down. This allows everyone to learn, even us bystanders from afar.
