From the Board of Directors of the Mount Vernon Community Children’s Theatre:
We stand in solidarity with the black community. We believe black lives matter. Though MVCCT has been part of the community for over 40 years, we recognize that we have not consistently served nor been representative of the entire community. We commit to change this.
We have a long overdue responsibility to take part in the process of dismantling systemic racism, starting with identifying and addressing our own internalized biases and updating our core values to ensure that we build an organizational culture that reflects representation.
We will take some time to do the necessary work to self-reflect, educate, and understand how our privilege has impacted our choices and excluded the BIPOC (black, indigenous, and people of color) communities. And we will create a plan for moving our organization forward.
Our commitment for the time being is to do the work we must do in order to consciously stand against racism. We value every child who makes up our community and we will create more intentionality around representation.
