STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY
We, alongside the more than 30 Member Theatres of the Milwaukee Theatre Alliance, believe art is a platform for good. Art speaks out against wrongs and speaks up for those who suffer. We will continue to be a voice in solidarity against racism and against a system that allows for the continued persecution and murder of Black, African-American, African, and Caribbean community members here in Milwaukee and across our country. American citizens George Floyd and Breonna Taylor are just two of the many murdered and we stand in solidarity with those seeking justice.
We know we can do better and will do better to support minority communities. We are actively working to make Milwaukee Theatre a more inclusive and diverse community and we strive to be better listeners. We are here for you. We hear you, we see you, we love you, and we support you. We are in this for the long haul.
We encourage you to donate to organizations supporting racial justice like the ACLU, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Color of Change, Black Leaders Organizing for Communities and Leaders Igniting Transformation and hope you’ll support Milwaukee’s Black-owned businesses. A helpful resource can be found at MKEBlack.org.
