The team at EduMotion sees, hears, and stands in solidarity with the Black community, and is outraged by the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others before them. We recognize the importance of protest as a catalyst for change in bringing an end to systemic racism. We support and stand alongside all those working for justice and an end to racism and violence against the Black community in the United States and around the world. Black Lives Matter. 

As educators, we are acutely concerned with supporting student needs, especially the needs of students of color. Today we offer a few resources we have found helpful in relation to our role as educators. We share them today in case they are helpful to you as well:

As an organization committed to fostering inclusion, respect and social awareness through movement and cultural arts, we know it is incumbent upon us to listen, learn, and constantly strive to undo systemic racism and other forms of oppression.

Our summer plans include program updates that focus on adapting to a rapidly changing world and we are committed to putting anti-racist principles and culturally responsive pedagogy at the center of this work.

While we know that music and dance cannot solve the immense problems that lay before us, we also believe they are needed now more than ever as a source of healing, connection, and focus on our shared humanity.

We remain hopeful that a better world awaits and are committed to working with our community of educators to be the change we want to see. With your partnership, we look forward to helping all students find their voice, build relationships across cultural divides, and understand the important role they play as global citizens.
