Blues Union stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the Movement for Black Lives in taking a stand against police brutality and systemic racism. We believe Black lives matter, Black trans lives matter, and other Black LGBTQ+ lives matter. All Black lives matter.
Blues music and dance are born from and shaped by Black experiences past and present, queer and not. As participants in this art, we cannot ignore the injustices that continue to be committed against Black communities today.
As a reminder, we have a zero-tolerance policy for any harassment against marginalized people. We will support anyone who calls out racism, refuses dances with racists, or otherwise refuses to accommodate racists.
