Black Lives Matter

We are devastated by the murder of George Floyd and his death serves as a wake-up call for all of us to do more to dismantle systemic racism. Racism has a long and painful history of damage done to our society. We cannot achieve a sustainable future without healing these wounds. Urban Green stands in solidarity with the Black community and shares in the pain felt across our city and nation. We strive to build a better future together and remain committed to social and environmental justice. But we know we have a lot to do. We will continue to educate ourselves and pledge to take concrete steps within our organization and the sustainability community to advance racial equity and justice.
