Oregon Parks and Recreation Department stands against racism; protests continue at State Capitol State Park

Salem, Ore – In troubling times, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) reminds every Oregonian that all people are welcome at a state park.

“There is no place for racism in any Oregon State Park,” says Lisa Sumption, OPRD Director. “Period.”

At 6 p.m. Monday, June 1, the State Capitol State Park in Salem, often used as a venue for demonstrations and a platform to address the state seat of political power, will be the site of protests related to the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.
