A Statement from the Board of Directors

Michigan Historic Preservation Network joins with those who appeal for an end to racial injustice. The anguish and struggle is hundreds of years in the making and involves countless individuals whose stories are woven into the very buildings, streets, neighborhoods, and landscapes that we in our field seek to preserve. But the field of historic preservation needs to do better. MHPN is committed to doing the hard, soul-searching, uncomfortable, and long overdue work to become part of the solution. This is not just a moment, but a long-fought journey, and MHPN stands with our Black colleagues and all those who are fighting for a more just, more equitable future.
