OCC Statement of Solidarity

This is the Outer Critics Circle’s statement in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. 

The Outer Critics Circle stands in solidarity with our Black and brown colleagues in the theater community and activists all around the world who are fighting against systemic racism and police brutality. There is no place for this kind of hatred in the world, and as both lovers and critics of the theater, we are committed to pointing out and supporting the changes needed in the theater community as it works to dismantle the overwhelming whiteness that permeates the industry.

The Executive Committee is also planning a donation to Black Lives Matter of Greater New York.
