In June, we as a community shifted our focus to the long-standing systemic inequities that have continued to plague our society as much as any pandemic. While Center Theatre Group’s Leadership issued our own Commitments to Change, we also received letters from individuals and groups urging us to do better and go further. These letters included communications from an organized group of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) staff within Center Theatre Group and the writings of our colleagues making up We See You White American Theatre.
We are very grateful for the courage and strength these individuals and groups showed in sharing their demands and reflections and we wish to lift up and share our appreciation for the incredible labor that has gone into their work. We hope to honor this vital work in our actions and transformations. We fully recognize that Center Theatre Group has been complicit in the culture of white supremacy and anti-Blackness that dominates our field and society. We are committed to ease and heal the hurt and anger people have experienced and to become the anti-racist organization our entire community needs.
We are committed to using this space on our website to report on our actions and to remain accountable for our own Commitments to Change and to the demands of our colleagues.
