On behalf of the Energy Bar Association, the Presidents of the EBA, CFEBA, and FELJ have today issued the following statement, which is joined by the undersigned Past Presidents of EBA:

 

Diversity is an integral thread in the vibrant fabric of the Energy Bar Association. Our core values commit us to nurturing an inclusive community where all energy lawyers and practitioners are welcome, respected, and actively supported consistent with EBA’s Diversity & Inclusion Policy. We are committed to promoting diverse voices in the energy industry through our programming and ensuring EBA is a safe space for all energy practitioners to actively participate and contribute.

 

Over the past months, we have witnessed with deep sadness the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor as well as other deeply troubling events with racist overtones. These are only the most recent of the many examples of racism that still plague our society. In this time of national rage, fear and pain, it is incumbent on all of us to stand up in support of justice and in opposition to racism. We at EBA rededicate ourselves to our most basic and central values: respect for all people and unequivocal rejection of discrimination.

 

We condemn racism and discrimination in all its forms.
