But the recent murders of Black Americans have left an everlasting mark on our city, state, and country.
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.
Queens Botanical Garden is seeking assistance for completing the next phase of its Education Center Capital Campaign, creating a new Strategic Plan and developing our development function to build strength for the future.
