Vanessa Nakate is an African climate activist. She was recently cropped out of a press photo from a climate event in Davos, Stockholm which was attended by several other climate activists mainly of European decent.

It is very unsettling to see this happening in this day in age. This article was made to appear like there were no climate activists from other ethnicites at this event. It was obviously upsetting for miss Nakate but also for many others especially those of African origin to be made to feel excluded from something you hold so dearly and are passionate about.

The media needs to be help accountable for how they show all matters as this felt like a blatant show of racism towards this young lady and others who look like her.

Join me in bringing this to the attention of the major media outlets. This will not be buried. It appears that certain people in this world are only happy to push an agenda and a face that they feel is worthy regardless of whether they are deserving. And others are pushed to the back or not acknowledged at all. Inclusion of people from all backgrounds is something to be very inspired about when it comes to things as important as climate change.

Thank you.
