The Lifespan of a Fact

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.
D’Youville Kavinoky Theatre Land Acknowledgement Statement
We acknowledge that we are on the land of Indigenous people. Traditionally, these lands were home to many nations, including the Neutral, Erie, Wenro, Huron and other peoples. Today, these lands are still regarded as being the traditional homelands of the Seneca and other Haudenosaunee peoples. We respect the treaty rights of the Six Nations - the Seneca, Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, and Tuscarora - and the obligation of the United States and New York governments and American society to adhere to them. We honor the legacy of the many ancestors and elders who made this land their home and infused it with their spirit for thousands of years. We also honor the Original Peoples who remain on the ancestral homelands of Turtle Island and who have survived centuries of colonialism, genocide, and land theft. Finally, we honor those who are not here, but who might have been, were it not for this history of violence. With hearts and minds focused on healing and truth, we remember the powerful example of democracy and federalism set by the Haudenosaunee, embodied in the Great Law of Peace. Through this inspiration, we commit ourselves to advocate for inclusion and restitution for past atrocities. May we all aspire to a world of reconciliation, guided by the example of the Haudenosaunee themselves, so that our weapons of war are buried forever, and mutual respect and equality prevail among all peoples and nations.
