The Garden Project
On a Saturday afternoon, October 16, 2021, Trey Imamura was walking his friend's dog through the park of the International Peace Gardens in Salt Lake City where he discovered vandalism in the Japanese Garden with intent to damage the garden walls with graphic language. Trey reached out to authorities to report the graffiti damage and Asian Link Project was notified of the incident. Asian Link Project Directors feel it is highly imperative and encouraged to bring public awareness to any hate crimes against any innocent communities in our city. Asian Link Project connected Trey Imamura immediately to ABC4 News Reporter Jason Nguyen to tell the story and bring public attention to help prevent this from happening again.
