The Chesapeake Bay Trust stands strong against racism.  Systemic racism must be stopped.  We condemn the atrocious acts of violence and intimidation directed towards people of color that continue to happen again and again.  The Trust is committed to reducing the devastating impacts of racism that intersect in the conservation and environmental arena. We support the similar thoughts and sentiments expressed by many fellow environmental organizations and foundations, including but not limited to those referenced below.  For all those who are hurting: We embrace you, we are listening to you, we will empower your voice, and we stand by you.
