A Message of Solidarity 2020
What we’re doing:
We began our journey of self-education with Anti-Oppression training in 2019. This training is now a permanent part of the budget so future board members can continue this work and equity can be part of the fabric of our organization. The work does not end here. We will continue to listen and discuss, and find further ways we can help. This is a movement, not a moment. If you have thoughts on how the CCE can better support BIPOC creators, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
