COVID-19: The Recovery will Happen in Public Space

Last Monday, a Black man named George Floyd was suffocated in public space by a white police officer's knee on his neck for nearly nine minutes, as he cried out that he could not breathe. No conversation about improving public space should happen without recognizing and fighting this kind of racist police brutality.

Project for Public Spaces is committed to learning and practicing anti-racism, and we stand in solidarity with the protests around the country and with our Black partners and peers.

Right now, as someone who cares about public space, we ask that you take a moment to donate to one or more organizations that are working toward police and criminal justice reform and racial justice in your community.
