BLACK LIVES MATTER

Black Lives Matter. The Skatepark Project stands with protestors in opposition to the brutality committed against black Americans by police and to the historic systemic and institutional racism inflicted on black communities across the U.S. We are also reviewing our internal policies on staffing, governance, and grant funding to ensure we are doing everything we can to address the social and economic imbalance by bringing quality public skateparks to youth in black communities and other underserved areas. Since 2002 The Skatepark Project has been helping create safe and inclusive spaces where kids can be active and connected. Skateboarding and skateparks bring people of every background together—skateparks are havens of racial diversity, where youth connect through the sport they love. The critical role that skateparks serve has never been so clear, and The Skatepark Project is committed to bringing new skateparks to the communities that need them most.

COVID-19 RESPONSE

The health and well-being of skateboarders—both in the communities we serve and in all communities—is always our top priority, but especially during these difficult times. To limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we encourage everyone to follow shelter-in-place/stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines, whether skateboarding on the street or in skateparks that may remain open. As an organization, we have temporarily closed our office and have asked all employees to work from home, stagger work schedules, and are follow social distancing guidelines. In addition, The Skatepark Project has canceled all scheduled events over the coming months.
