Black and Hispanic students are disproportionately burdened by the impact of oil & gas drilling on schools - as are students eligible for free and reduced school meals. Environmental racism is alive and drilling in @GavinNewsom's California. #SetbacksNow…
We’re almost halfway through #Pinktober aka Breast Cancer Industry Month. What outrageous, hypocritical, no accountability, or cancer-causing pink ribbon promotions are you seeing in your community? Post a photo or share a link. #Pinkwashing #ThinkBeforeYouPink #BreastCancer
Fossil fuel funders like @BankofAmerica are fueling the climate and breast cancer crises, and @SusanGKomen has no business partnering with industries that increase our risk for #BreastCancer. That’s #pinkwashing.…

We must follow the leadership of Indigenous communities and take action to dismantle the profit-driven systems that continue to displace and harm Indigenous folx. One collective action that we can take is to demand an immediate end to our fossil fuel dependence.
Breast Cancer Action wants to be an agent of healing, and to advocate for the complex and myriad changes we all need in order to thrive. The climate crisis is a global emergency, and the fossil fuel industry is driving the crisis.
The fossil fuel industry, from extraction to the plastic in our kitchens, contaminates water, agricultural land, and the air we breathe, and impacts are disproportionately felt by frontline Indigenous communities. Resources vital to their existence are constantly being poisoned.
In present day advocacy and marches for environmental justice across the U.S, the Indigenous contingent is always present and persevering. One reason is the fact that fossil fuel infrastructure frequently occupies Indigenous land.
We acknowledge 500 years of colonial oppression experienced by Indigenous people, a history of violence and deep cultural wounding of communities who are the stewards of this land.
Thread: For BCAction, Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a day to not only honor Indigenous communities, but also a day to remember the past and envision the future. #IndigenousPeoplesDay #IndigenousPeoplesDay2021

Part III of our 3-part series The Tale of the Pinkwashed Partnership reveals that when @SusanGKomen partners with a top fossil fuel funder, they are compromised. This results in a conflict of interest whereby the org ignores the link between fossil fuel exposures & #BreastCancer.
Sigan esta cuenta que va contando todos los pinkwashing de las empresas americanas. Ojalá hubiera algo así para España, aunque no hace falta lo vemos todos los días.…

We’ve signed on to @BCAction’s #StopBankingOnBreastCancer campaign because the fossil fuel projects funded by Bank of America are fueling the climate & #BreastCancer crises. Adding a pink ribbon to these cards doesn’t make it okay-it makes it #pinkwashing.

We’re telling the story of why @SusanGKomen's Pink Ribbon Banking Program is so hypocritical in a 3-part illustrated series. Part I: When Suzie Q. Meets Bob the Banker. Everything seems to be going well, but there's more to the story than meets the eye. #BreastCancer #Pinkwashing
For the whole story, stay tuned for Parts II & III, to be released tomorrow 10/7 and Friday 10/8.
Nothing like comedy & @iamsambee on @jonstewart to bring a point home. Worthy watch if you haven't seen it. Worthy rewatch if you have! So laugh, & have an aha moment. #Pinktober #pinkwashing @BCAction #breastcancerawarenessmonth #thinkbeforeyoupink
