Earlier this month, RAMPS joined leaders from across the continent for the 4th Extreme Energy Extraction Collaborative (or E3C) Summit in Biloxi, MS. As part of the Extreme Energy Extraction Collaborative, RAMPS helps build connections between different organizations and frontline communities fighting extraction,
as well as helping to organize this annual summit where leaders of the anti-extraction movement come to meet, share, and strategize. This year, the inspiring summit focused on creating space for cross-movement learning, and relationship-building, and dynamic dialogue among a diverse group of working organizers.
RAMPS supports the work of E3C because of the important values and key concepts it holds around such ideas as the importance of unity and true solidarity among the diversity of the movement struggling against extractive industry in the face of the climate crisis. We’ve been thrilled to see the anti-extraction movement recognize itself and start acting with a stronger sense of identity and with more collective intent and synergism over the last four years, and we’re committed to continue being a part of the vital movement-building work happening through the E3C.
