SHF BIPOC Statement
The Spring Hills Foundation stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, and supports the dismantling of systems of racial injustice that have oppressed Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) for centuries. We continue to learn how we can best serve BIPOC communities and act as allies against the cancerous impact of systemic racism.
In addition to the fact that Black people have been systematically excluded from farming, pollution and climate change have a disproportionate impact on Black communities. Protecting the environment and preserving family farms are central to the Spring Hills Foundation mission.
We support educational programming at the Spring Hills Farm that allows for deeper connections with the earth, artistic inspiration, and immersion in the rhythm of nature. We are committed to continuing our history of welcoming all people, especially those from underserved, marginalized, and disenfranchised communities.
We strive to acknowledge, respect, and celebrate differences and commonalities in order to best create inclusive, loving and healing spaces for everyone. As we move forward, we will strengthen existing partnerships and create new ones. We will adapt our outreach, programming, and governance to ensure a meaningful and accessible experience for all.
