MRPC Statement on Racial Justice

As a nonprofit that embraces equality, we believe Black Lives Matter.

On Sunday, June 7th, 2020, a rally in support of the movement for racial justice triggered by the murder of George Floyd as a result of police misconduct began from Mill River Park. The Mill River Park Collaborative, steward of the Park, was proud to host this peaceful demonstration and is aligned with its goal of social justice. Black Lives Matter.
The Collaborative has sought to make Mill River Park an oasis of peace where all are welcome, where all are treated equally and respectfully, and where all are able to connect with nature in their own way. We will always strive to do more, to be better, and to live up to the ideals upon which our country was founded and which we hope all of our citizens will strive to achieve.
