On Saturday, October 17, 2015 the Committee of the Jubilee, a self-organized group of theatremakers from around the country published a call to action for the American Theatre community. The premise is simple. Theatres and individuals who want to commit to the vision of a year of Jubilee in 2020 are invited to sign the pledge below and be listed here, publicly.
What if there was a nation-wide, year-long theatre festival in the United States of America featuring only superlative work by women, people of color, Native American artists, LGBTQIA artists, Deaf artists, and artists with disabilities?
In order to address equity in the American Theatre and in my community, I pledge to support a manifestation of this diverse, inclusive, and intersectional vision in the 2020-2021 season to the fullest degree.
This will be a season of Jubilee! I look forward to celebrating the work of traditionally marginalized voices throughout all of 2020-2021 and making permanent progress toward inclusion even after 2021. I ask you to join me. Together, we can change the face of the American Theatre.
