We have all been feeling anger, anxiety, and profound sadness stemming from the brutal murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis and the preventable death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet here in Toronto. These horrifying tragedies have once again brought systemic racial inequities to the forefront. Racism is real. It’s deeply embedded. Its impact is devastating. Our black colleagues, friends and mentors experience it on a daily basis. We are asking ourselves hard questions. We are looking at who we are. We are challenging ourselves to listen and do better – to understand what that means and how to take action. We are determined to be a part of the massive effort it will take to make effective change.

If you are able, please consider donating to Black Lives Matter and our colleagues at Obsidian Theatre NOW Magazine has also published a list of organizations that support the black community and promote anti-racism.
