Black people have endured brutality at the hands of police and others for centuries in America.

As we collectively call out systemic racism in American society, we are equally committed to identifying, examining, and eradicating it in our art form, our industry, and our union.

We commit to being proactive and attentive to the ways in which we can dismantle these unjust structures.

We commit to leaning into the discomfort of learning, as we strive to acknowledge our individual and collective failures, challenge others to confront their own, and seek to do better every day.

Our words represent our promise. Let it be our actions by which we are judged.
