President Barack Obama Presidential Memorandum Promoting Diversity and Inclusion in Our National Parks, Forests, and other Public Lands and Waters

“That’s what makes this particular designation so important. We heard from the community, that for a lot of urban families, this is their only big outdoor space. Too many children in L.A.County, especially children of color, don’t have access to parks where they can run free, breathe fresh air, experience nature, and learn about their environment.” President Barack Obama, designating the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. "This is an issue of social justice. Because it’s not enough to have this awesome natural wonder within your sight -– you have to be able to access it." This is a historic moment, when the President of the United States recognizes park access as an environmental justice issue. “The President not only displayed compassion and understanding of environmental justice but, was fundamentally motivated by the issues when he declared the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. Robert Garcia and The City Project, thanks for your work to make the case for environmental justice and the San Gabriel National Monument a reality.” Daniel Rossman, chair, San Gabriel Mountains Forever coalition. "The City Project's work on park access is one of the two leading areas in environmental justice." Leslie Fields, Sierra Club, Director, Environmental Justice and Community Partnership Program.
