We are writing to let you know that the CMAC - Coalition of Museum and Art Centers at Syracuse University (CMAC) stands with our students, and against bias and hate speech in all forms. We have institutionalized those goals in our strategic plan and state:
We believe that we live in a society where all individuals and all artists do not yet have the same opportunities. In order to address those inequalities, it will be the goal of the organizations within CMAC to equally represent and support artists of color, LGBTQ artists, artists with disabilities, and any other marginalized groups in all our programs.
The CMAC facilities are safe spaces for everyone to share ideas, examine differences, and find common ground. We know that there are better days ahead, so please know that your friends in the arts stand by you as we work to make our world a better place.
