November 10, 2016: STATEMENT FROM THE LTC STEERING COMMITTEE IN RE: THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
Like many of you, we are confused, devastated, and/or overwhelmed by Tuesday night's presidential election returns. We do not fear any one man, but the movement his campaign has incited.
Up until now, the LTC has not taken a stand on any one political issue as a group. We fundamentally believe in the diversity of our community, and disavow any language that attempts to ignore this. Latina/o/xs come in all skin colors, nationalities, language preferences, races, genders, sexual orientations, and yes, even political affiliations.
However, we do stand against literal and symbolic violence against our peoples. While we do acknowledge that this country was founded upon violence, we believe we must continue working toward a different kind of United States. We believe the same work applies to our Commons.
Over the past few months, the LTC Steering Committee has been engaged in work to actively assess where our gaps are: who is missing from our conversations and decisions, why they are missing, and most importantly, how can we make our space not only more welcoming, but more accessible. We are working to ensure that inclusion is not just a buzzword; it is a daily practice, and in doing so, we are equitably empowering Latina/o/x theatre artists and leaders to interrupt the current power dynamic of our culture, nation, and field. Over the next few weeks, you will start to see some updates to our language and action. We welcome any questions, comments, criticism, and concerns to help make our Commons a more equitable place. We ask for your help, patience, trust, and tough love, when we need it. You are our community, and why we do this work. This is our country, and we will not allow it to crumble.
The Steering Committee of the Latina/o Theatre Commons (LTC)
