Dear Members of the Public Garden Community,

All of us are grappling with the killings of Georgia citizen Ahmaud Arbery, Minnesota citizen George Floyd, Kentucky citizen Breonna Taylor, and so many other instances of racism and violence against black people.  As an Association, we kneel in solidarity as a show of support for justice and peace.  We strive to uphold our values of inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility and speak out against acts of violence and racism.

The Board and Staff of the American Public Gardens Association
