“It’s up to all of us… It starts with self-examination and listening to those whose lives are different from our own. It ends with justice, compassion, and empathy that manifests in our lives and on our streets.”
Chimera Ensemble stands in solidarity with the activists and protesters working for racial justice in our city and across the nation. We will continue listening, supporting, and educating ourselves in the days, months, and years ahead, recognizing and facing our complicity in white supremacist culture in general and in the theater community in particular. It is imperative that we work to make Chimera an antiracist organization in action as well as in name, and that our practices align with and promote the ongoing struggle for racial justice.
– Michelle Obama
