We of the Fleeing Artists Theatre strongly believe that Black Lives Matter, and support the voices of all POC. Please know: we hear you, we support you, and we will stand with you, now and forever. We encourage all our supporters and followers to do the same. Continue to listen and speak out against injustice in the coming days, weeks, months and years ahead, unified behind a message of love for people, no matter their skin color.
We will do the same. We will do the work necessary in educating ourselves, in reaching out our hands in support as allies, and as a theatre company, we will strive to do better about ensuring that the creative voices of black people and all POC are heard, and heard loudly. (More detailed plans of action are in the works, and will be announced real soon.)
And remember: apathy and indifference are the same as silence. All of us must remain vigilant in the pursuit of justice and equality. Continue to listen, continue to read, continue to share, and never let up until you have become the change you wish to see in the world.
