Gaslight Theatre Company is committed to making our theatre community better and strongly stands with #blacklivesmatter. But we know saying it is not enough.
Our board has been having a lot of conversations this past week about how we can support our community immediately and improve as a company. And while we have brainstormed a list of actions, they have been created in our own vacuum.
We believe the first thing we need to do is listen. With that in mind, we are pledging two initial things:
We know there is much more we can do in terms of inclusivity on our board, within our play selection, and with outreach. But we truly want to develop a specific and actionable plan to make that happen, which will be our primary objective at our Board Meeting this month. And we want to hold ourselves accountable and pledge to share a more detailed plan by July 1.
