We as a team have been processing the tragedy and murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Tony McDade, which have taken us to our breaking point.
The institutional racism, social and educational inequities, discrimination, and police violence in our country have been passively observed with indifference and in action for far, far too long.
We support the black community, protestors, and all allies. We stand with those who remind us that this moment in fact represents many lifetimes of institutional and systemic injustice, violence, disinvestment, and inequity.
Ingenuity was founded to increase arts education access, quality and equity for all students, and we are working to identify how we can be more responsive to the needs of our black students, principals, teachers and arts partners. We are also using this time to critically reflect on the ways we can uplift black voices, both internally and externally, in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
All of us at Ingenuity are more resolute than ever in our fight for every student, in every grade, in every school, and we commit to the struggle for black lives everywhere to finally, decidedly, matter.
