Our Commitment

As a community of artists, we model and promote positive actions to create safe environments for all people. The art program affirms the commitment to be active in: the creation of a welcoming community; the defense of the rights of all; and a continuing and unwavering condemnation for all forms of bias and oppression. We support and work to create a culture of gratitude for people of all race, gender, age, abilities, national origin, religion, and sexual orientation.
