Broadway Advocacy Coalition Will Host 3-Day Forum- Broadway for Black Lives Matter

On June 10th, 11th, and 12th, the Broadway Advocacy Coalition will host a three-part forum for the Broadway community to heal, listen, and hold itself accountable to its history of white supremacy. Registration for all three events is now open.

This forum is rooted in the Broadway theater community, but is intended for all who work in the theater industry: actors, stage managers, producers, ushers, marketing interns, industry vets, recent theater grads, from New York and beyond. We are creating a space for us all to come together and begin the process of becoming an anti-racist and equitable community.

Broadway Advocacy Coalition is committed to creating a safe virtual environment and maintains the right to remove any participants disregarding the safety or well being of other participants.
