Racial Justice Resources

 

Updated: November 16, 2020, 10:00am

Dance/NYC seeks to dismantle white supremacy in dance and amplify the voices and autonomy of the African, Latina/o/x, Asian, Arab, and Native American (ALAANA) community. Please refer to Dance/NYC’s Racial Justice Agenda to learn more about our work. 

Dance/NYC’s vision for a just, equitable, and inclusive dance ecology is short- and long-term and encompasses changes to policy, investments, programs, attitudes, and actions impacting ALAANA artists, cultural workers, and audiences. Dance/NYC recognizes that racial justice does not exist individually or siloed from additional equity areas and interrelated forces of oppression (e.g., disability, immigrant matters, economic justice) in its work nor in the lives of its constituents. Instead, racial justice requires an intersectional* approach that builds upon multiple areas that together create a more just, equitable, and inclusive dance ecology. 

Below you can find a list of anti-racism resources and advocacy action items for how you and your organization can take steps towards  justice, equity, and inclusion.
