Sacramento Tree Foundation Statement on Racial Justice
June 3, 2020
Our hearts are with the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Stephon Clark and everyone whose lives have been impacted by injustice and race-based violence.
Communities of color in the Sacramento region suffer from many of these same social ills that impact cities across our nation, and there is huge inequity between neighborhoods.
We as an organization make a promise to listen, to honor the wisdom of the Black and Brown communities of Sacramento, to stand for justice, and to support the healing that must occur. If we are to grow thriving communities, we must confront inequity and stand in solidarity with those who are struggling for justice and peace.
