“I am horrified and deeply saddened at the recent murders in Georgia and the wave of violence against members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community across the country,” said Diane Regas, President and CEO of The Trust for Public Land. “The surest way we can successfully overcome our challenges — this devastating pandemic, economic recession, longstanding racial inequity, and a climate crisis  is to see our common humanity in one another. That means doing the active work to connect and reconnect with one another — in our parks and public lands, in our schools and churches, in the places we work, learn, play, and worship.”
