ACTRA Toronto Statement on Racism and Discrimination

ACTRA Toronto strongly condemns anti-Black racism, police violence and all forms of discrimination. Stopping racism and systemic discrimination takes our collective voice and commitment to sustained action.

We stand in solidarity with all those who seek to create a free, fair and truly inclusive society, here in Canada and around the world. We will not be silent in the face of injustice, bigotry or racialized violence.

As a union of artists and story tellers, we believe story telling is at its most powerful when it includes and connects people. We will continue to support, promote and celebrate the work of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) creators. We will continue to advocate, to listen and to fight for justice, equality, inclusion, and real change in our society.
