The Broadway Advocacy Coalition (BAC) will hold their “What Now” forum on Monday, February 15th at 6 pm EST. The forum will discuss what’s next in the continued fight for equality and equity in the theatre industry and political landscape. Panelists include Jeanine Tesori, Rachel Chavkin, Kate Shindle, Warren Adams from Broadway Theatre Coalition, Brandon Michael Nase from Broadway For Racial Justice, and Destinee Rea from BOLD. The event will be moderated by Amber Iman and Richard Gray.
Their announcement via Instagram BAC states, “Symbols of change do not always represent the action of change. This forum is the catalyst of actionable change.”
BAC was founded in 2016 by members of the Broadway community and is an arts-based advocacy organization working to create equitable spaces and build the capacity of individuals and organizations to dismantle racism. Their recent work includes the three-day forum Broadway for Black Lives Matter and launching the Cody Renard Richard Scholarship program.
