About The Event

Join Livonia Citizens Caring About Black Lives at Rotary Park to pick up trash. Dress warm and in layers. If you have an empty grocery bag and a pair of disposable gloves, please bring them, but a limited number will be available.

Rotary Park has a lot to offer Metro-Detroit families with its recently built accessible playscape, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and nature trails. However, racist graffiti has been found at the park over the last two years. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=2875560169394138&id=2341548976128596

Further, another community group, Families Engaging for Equity in Livonia, requested permission for a youth-designed mural in the theme of "Everyone Belongs" on a pavilion at Rotary Park. The request was denied due to an ordinance prohibiting signs or billboards in city parks. Curiously, "Be Kind Livonia" signage is present in the park, a campaign that is sponsored by Rosedale Gardens Presbyterian Church.

Livonia Citizens Caring About Black Lives wants to make sure Livonia and the surrounding communities know this park is a welcoming space for all. With our presence and our service, we can do that!
