AJT’s Anti-Racism Training Sessions
“We at Alliance for Jewish Theatre stand in solidarity with those calling for justice and the end of racism in our country. We support the artists and activists, neighbors and friends raising their voices and speaking out against violence toward Black community members. We are unequivocal in our belief that Black lives and their stories matter. Let us not forget that because they are the lives and stories that built this nation. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Amaud Arbery, Oscar Grant and countless others matter. #BlackLivesMatter”
