Amid our anger and frustration about continuing violence against Black people and our country’s long history of racial inequity, we at Chicago a cappella understand that it is our responsibility to do everything we can to combat racism. The challenge we face as a society calls for action and accountability, rather than simply good intentions. To that end, our Board of Directors has articulated Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as a primary organizational goal. As we embark on this journey toward justice, we pledge to listen to a broad array of voices, approaching the work with humility and open minds. Over the coming months, we will devise a concrete plan of action that will articulate how we will work to advance toward these ideals in our organization and in the wider community. We will be sharing these plans with you, and we invite you—the loyal audience who has fostered our growth through 27 seasons—to share your perspectives on how we can further this mission.
