ACPW affirms our solidarity with those who are fighting for equality and justice.
Accordingly, every Friday, starting on June 12th, we are pledging to donate 70% of the contributions received from attendees to the following organizations:
Artists of Color Emergency Fund was made to in support of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists AND administrators (consultants, facilitators, box office staff, seasonal/temporary employees, etc.) who have been financially impacted due to COVID-19.
Black Lives Matter was founded after the murder of Trayvon Martin in 2013. The global organization’s mission is to eradicate white supremacy, build powerful communities, celebrate Black creativity and joy, and so much more.
Broadway for Racial Justice - this new organization fights for racial equity on Broadway and amongst the entire theater community. Helps them foster a space for Black, Indigenous, people of color and donate.
The Bail Project is “designed to combat mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system — one person at a time.” Supporting this nonprofit will help the protesters getting arrested every night and also combat the ongoing issue of mass incarceration, especially for people of color.
The NAACP Legal Defense Fund fights for racial injustice through litigation, advocacy, and public education. The NAACP Legal Defense Fund works to create structural change, protect voters, and achieve racial justice for all Americans.
While this fundraiser cannot make up for the pain and suffering that the Black community has experienced for centuries, this will be one of the steps that Alessandra Corona Performing Works will take towards change.
Participants of each Class are invited to contribute.
