Black Lives Matter
Authority Statement in Solidarity with Social Justice Movements
The San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority condemns the recent acts of police brutality, as well as the long history of systemic racism in our country. We stand with those fighting for racial justice and equity in affirming that Black Lives Matter.
The Restoration Authority is committed to integrating equity into our own work by continuing to listen, welcoming new voices and partnerships, and working with community leaders to develop projects that empower and benefit communities that historically have been excluded from habitat restoration and the design of parks and trails. We wish to acknowledge the hard and important work of our community-based partners and Advisory Committee over the past two years to develop recommendations for improving equity in the Measure AA grant program. We recognize the potential for habitat restoration to create places where people can benefit from the regenerative and healing power of nature. Together, we will work to heal our communities and the Bay.
