The deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd should outrage us all, and come in the midst of a health crisis already exacerbating racial disparities. As an organization, we at Boston Harbor Now are committed to listening, learning, reflecting and acting upon how we can build a just and equal society.
This includes the harbor spaces where we work. We all have a responsibility to confront the systemic racism that prevents our open spaces – whether streets, parks, or waterfront – from feeling safe and accessible to all. Boston Harbor Now is committed to being a part of the solution.
There is still much work to be done. As we plan, redesign, and build our waterfront to protect us all from the threats of rising seas, we must ensure that our collective efforts create and support public spaces that are welcoming and benefit everyone.
