The La Grange Art League supports all those who stand up against injustice and demands fairness and equality for all. The Black Lives Matters protests have generated much-needed awareness, action and change. We as an organization will be taking steps to discuss what concrete actions we can take to increase diversity among our membership, accessibility of our classes, and outreach to underserved communities, to amplify black and brown voices, and to speak out against injustice everywhere. The La Grange Art League is working on developing an arts program in our lower income neighorhoods, places of greater diversity with economic disadvantage, and with limited ability to travel to our studio for classes. We are also setting up the LGAL inclusion, diversity and outreach task force in conjunction with joining the Community Diversity Group of La Grange to discuss opportunities to strengthen community relationships, broaden equal opportunities and fight prejudices against Black, Indigenous, People of Color. If you are interested in participating in this group or have input yo would like to share contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask you to continue to spark dialogue on the Black Lives Matter movement through your conversations, actions and especially the powerful medium of art.
