Frontpage - Solidarity Statement

Black Lives MatterOur daily work at Avena is with healing plants. It is clear that the most needed medicine for this moment is uprooting racism in our individual lives, in our organizations, and in our society, in an ongoing way, down to the very soil.

We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We support the liberation of all marginalized people and beings on this planet who suffer under our broken systems that value profit, competition, and domination, and require exploitation to maintain the status quo. In this moment, the plight of our Black and Brown siblings is at the front of our minds as we humbly listen to their voices calling for change, and we align our work with these calls.
