Statement of Solidarity with Black and Indigenous Communities

Vtape and the Independent Media Arts Alliance stand in solidarity with Black and Indigenous communities.

We are committed to confronting and fighting systemic racism, police brutality and oppression in all of its forms. We encourage members of the media arts community and beyond to amplify Black and Indigenous voices, to financially support initiatives in their local areas dedicated to racial justice, to engage with family, friends and colleagues in difficult and welcomed conversations of privilege and institutional racism

We invite member organizations to share this statement or to create their own, to ask themselves what more they can do and to commit themselves to the constant learning that racial justice demands. 

In Solidarity,

IMAA/AAMI
