TO OUR KAVINOKY THEATRE COMMUNITY:
Black Lives Matter.
This is a moment.
In this moment, our hearts break for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others.
In this moment, we reflect and ask: can we call ourselves inclusive if we remain silent about the heinous injustices taking place in front of our very eyes?
The answer resounds clearly. We take this moment to declare our truth as an organization and to raise our voices against racism and white supremacy.
This is a moment of truth. We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
“The ultimate measure of a person is not where one stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where one stands in times of challenge and controversy.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion statement:
At The Kavinoky Theatre, we believe that there is no place in this world for discrimination, prejudice, or racial injustice. We believe that Black Lives Matter, love is love, and that every person deserves to be treated with respect, equality, and equity. Our goal is to celebrate the diversity of our world through the creation of art, and to also reflect these values within our organization.
The Kavinoky Theatre strives for our stages, board, staff, and audience to mirror the wonderful diverse community in which we live.
