On the Scene at the Seattle Climate Strike
Nerd Caucus here, reporting in from the Seattle climate protests, where we’ve delivered our resolution in support of Amazon Employees for Climate Justice and their company-wide walkout! Nerd Caucus exists in part to encourage more political engagement from the tech sector, and we believe AECJ’s walkout perfectly exemplifies that goal.
As employees of one of the largest companies on the planet, we applaud their willingness to stand up and hold corporate leadership to account for their role in causing -and responsibility for stopping- the climate change that threatens every one of us. We hope that their collective action continues to serve as a moral compass within Amazon, and as an example to other companies in the tech sector.
