Over the last few months, we’ve committed to making Audubon an antiracist institution—a commitment built on years of learning and action. Audubon’s presence in hundreds of communities across America gives us a responsibility to help correct centuries of racial injustice by changing our internal and external practices. And that includes a reassessment of our own history. While most have come to know the National Audubon Society for our conservation and policy leadership, our science, and our community-based education efforts, we owe our members and others a full accounting and reckoning with John James Audubon himself. There is a lot of his personal history that must be laid bare. John James Audubon’s contributions to ornithology, art, and culture are enormous, but he was a complex and troubling character who did despicable things during his life. In the strongest possible terms, we condemn the role he played in enslaving Black people and perpetuating white supremacist culture. It’s time to bring his ethical failings to the fore. Amid a horrific pandemic and the worst economy we’ve seen since the Great Depression, the velocity of social change has accelerated, demanding a great reckoning. We won’t fix 400 years of oppression overnight, but we can do far more as organizations and as individuals than we thought possible even six months ago. In order to do that, we have to own up to our pasts even while we chart a new future. We welcome your advice and your partnership. Click the link in our bio to find out more.
