The American Horticultural Therapy Association Board of Directors acknowledges the racism and pain that has recently triggered a wave of protest across the country. The AHTA stands united against any form of racism, discrimination, and injustice. We admire and respect the generous work of our Black colleagues. The plants we use in our profession are powerful symbols of community and diversity. The AHTA is committed to ensuring all our diversity and inclusion goals align with our Code of Ethics. As we continue our mission to encourage the pursuit of outstanding standards of practice and disseminate critical knowledge across diverse constituent audiences, we strive to make the pursuit of horticultural therapy equitable, broadly accessible, and universally welcoming. We acknowledge the importance of examining what may stand in the way of becoming a more inclusive field, as diverse as the populations we proudly serve.
