Grounded Statement on Racial Violence

Grounded works to promote equitable access to quality greenspace within marginalized communities. We acknowledge that our work is not separate from the larger concerns of racial violence, stigmatization, and oppression.

The context for our work, and the communities we work alongside, emerges from a long history of racial segregation, targeted divestment, redlining, and disenfranchisement of land from Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color.

We envision a region of thriving communities working together to sustain equitable change. The baseline for our vision requires the protection and sanctity of each individual life to be realized. We stand in solidarity with the communities mourning the victims of police homicide.

  1. YES! My family too was visited by police homicide. In 1983 in Buffalo N.Y. my brother Wayde Lee Oates was killed on our own property by the police. The cop got a 1000 award! and justice was never achieved.
