LION is Black-led collective committed to mobilizing a network of BPOC land stewards, by striving for access to land and affirming the right to grow and live in safe, sustainable communities. In the UK, ‘BAME’ communities are 60% less likely to be able to access green space and natural environments than their white counterparts. So LION recognizes the need for reparations in land ownership by connecting land and climate justice with racial justice.
