Queens Botanical Garden: Black Lives Matter

CB8T_QGC_Funding_1

On Blackout Tuesday, Queens Botanical Garden made a statement that they believe goes without saying: Black Lives Matter.

But given the recent events surrounding the police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and other black Americans, it has become more important than ever to make that statement.

Here’s QBG’s full statement:

“Queens Botanical Garden stands in solidarity with the Black community. We also acknowledge the fear, pain, and emotional labor that Black communities endure every day. We stand with you.

We must also continue to educate ourselves, hold ourselves and each other accountable, and keep discussions open and active about systemic racism. We are committed to critically examine our practices to ensure the Garden is an inclusive space for everyone.

There is no turning back, only forward. We cannot perpetuate the past, only do better in the long road ahead.”
