Dear friends,

Like you, for the past few weeks, we have watched, listened, and searched deeply into our hearts following the senseless and unwarranted murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many other Black lives.

First and foremost, The Brandywiners, Ltd. stands with Black Lives Matter.
Second, we will do our part to help abolish racism.

We recognize that we can only accomplish this work by embracing diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. It is never too late to learn, grow, and evolve.
We promise to better reflect the diverse perspectives and people of our vibrant theatrical community.
We promise to encourage our board, members, and participants to gain better perspective of others through education, empathy, and understanding.
We promise to do better – to be better.

But to do this, we must acknowledge that our country has stood on the heels of a long history of systemic racism and trauma. We have not done all that we could have done to be more inclusive. Things will change now.

The Brandywiners, Ltd. fully believes that the ARTS is a safe community of forward-thinking, caring, and respectful individuals. We want to aid in the effort to tear down barriers that divide the ARTS because of racism, and instead, unite.

Black Lives Matter. We wholeheartedly agree with this statement. We encourage you to please listen, learn, and support where you can. We vow to do the same.

Do not hesitate to send an email to admin@brandywiners.org with any comments or questions.

Let’s change the world … together.

Thank you.
