Statement of Solidarity
Since our founding in 1989, we have supported and worked towards racial justice in our work, amplifying more representation by and of people of color in the belief that representation matters and in the recognition that racism is individual, interpersonal, institutional and systemic.
We stand in solidarity with our Black, Brown, and Indigenous friends and colleagues in demanding justice for those who have faced multiple manifestations of White supremacy and structural racism and who have been denied opportunities to freely live their fullest lives. We see and validate the strength, beauty, gifts, rage, grief, and exhaustion of our friends and colleagues, and of communities of color everywhere.
Our medium is art and civic dialogue and we will continue to use our platform to work towards a more just society in the belief that we are all entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We stand united in the belief that voting is a crucial aspect of citizenship.
Black Lives Matter.
Your Vote is Your voice
We respectfully acknowledge that the lands on which we live and work are the traditional unceded lands of the Osage, Kaskaskia, Kickapoo, Miami, Quapaw, and Oglala Sioux.
We acknowledge them and any other Nations who care for the land (acknowledged and unacknowledged, recorded and unrecorded) as past, present, and future caretakers of this land.
We recognize that we are the recipients of their caregiving and stewardship of the land, their work that we do not rightfully deserve. We do not support colonial forces that undermine, distort, or erase the vital role of Indigenous people in our world.
