Department Statement on Racial Injustice
The Recreation Services department supports the Black Lives Matter movement and all it represents. We see a collective and urgent need to dismantle systemic racism by examining ourselves and working toward an equitable future.
For those who live with racial disparity every day, who repeatedly ask for change, who are tired of educating the rest of us – we are grateful for your resolve. We recognize that creating change requires a completely shared effort — especially against brutality and violence.
To our white patrons, participants and employees, we ask that you join our commitment to re-learn, re-think, show up, stand up, and speak up so that our friends and colleagues never have to make the statement, “We are tired of dying” again. It is our hope that BIPOC feel us united with them in the fight against injustice and racism.
