BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH CLASSICAL MUSIC
IN WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS
A MESSAGE FOR OUR COMMUNITY
For centuries, racism has permeated our legal, economic and social systems. It has affected the safety, health, education, and opportunities of Black people, and frequently manifests in acts of police brutality, as in the killing of Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and too many others.
We stand with Black people in the Pioneer Valley and across the nation to confront racism. We pledge to identify and confront racism in our organization, programming, and outreach.
