Statement of Solidarity: Black Lives Matter
At Profile Theatre our hearts are reeling from Black lives that continue to be lost daily at the hands of white supremacists protected by our culture and social infrastructure.
We remain in solidarity with the demonstrations and protests that have risen up in cities where George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and heartbreaking myriad more have been killed for daring to live free.
Black folx make up members of our staff, our board, our artists and our community. Their lives matter. Black lives matter. Black hopes, dreams, and fears matter. Black stories matter.
We will continue to amplify Black voices on our stage, in our community partnerships and within our organization. We commit to the anti-racism work so necessary in our organization, in our field and in our country. In the coming weeks, we will follow up with a statement detailing the specific commitments this work entails for us as an organization.
