Personal Statement Against Racism and Oppression

Collaborative thinking, the kind of thinking that defines our work as designers, is founded on the interplay of diverse and distinct voices, resonating with one another to create a unique and powerful new idea.  There are many voices that have been excluded or minimized in both our performing arts communities and our society at large.  We have an artistic and a moral obligation to ensure that those voices are not only heard but empowered. 

Land Acknowledgment

I acknowledge that this nation was founded upon exclusions and erasures of many Indigenous people's cultures and stories, including those of the Gabrielino/Tongva Nation on whose traditional, ancestral and unceded territory this University lies. I wish to pay my respects to the Indigenous land caretakers past, present, and emerging.  For more information please visit the Gabrielino-Tongva Tribe.

I further wish to acknowledge the enslaved people, primarily of African descent, whose labor built much of the wealth of this country and recognize my own complicity in the white supremacy that continues to inflict damage upon their descendants. One of many excellent lists of anti-racist resources.
