Pulley and Buttonhole Theatre Company condemns the systemic white supremacy in our country and our industry. We stand in solidarity with the African American community and recognize that as a predominantly white arts organization we have a duty to acknowledge our privilege and to use that privilege to support the work of BIPOC in dismantling corrupt systems and to engage in that work ourselves.

 To that end, we commit to:

  1. seeking out directors and designers of color and providing them with the opportunity and support to create work that reflects their experience and viewpoints.
  2. launching a series of workshops, performances, and discussions designed to help writers and performers of color develop work that speaks truth.
  3. increasing the diversity of our Board, leadership, and ensemble by working with and listening to BIPOC-led organizations to ensure that we are reflecting and sharing the voices and experiences of our community.
  4. engaging with members of our community to offer programming that addresses implicit and explicit biases and how to confront and change those biases.

These are just the first steps in a long and necessary journey.



Pulley & Buttonhole Theatre Company acknowledges that we are performing on the unceded ancestral lands of the Leni Lenape people, who still honor and protect them today. We recognize that the injustices of the past created the inequities of the present, and we work as an organization and individuals to accept our responsibility to atone for them and to work for justice and equity now and in the future.
