Greenleaf supports We Have Voice Code of Conduct
We Have Voice is a collective that has come together to work for positive change in the performing arts. Consisting of Fay Victor, Ganavya Doraiswamy, Imani Uzuri, Jen Shyu, Kavita Shah, Linda May Han Oh, María Grand, Nicole Mitchell, Okkyung Lee, Rajna Swaminathan, Sara Serpa, Tamar Sella, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Tia Fuller, the group:
is a collective of musicians, performers, scholars, and thinkers from different generations, races, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, gender identities, economic backgrounds, religious beliefs and affiliations. Together, they are determined to engage in transformative ways of thinking and being in their creative professional world, while being ingrained in an inclusive and intersectional analysis.
Learn more about the collective on their website and via profiles from NPR and the New York Times.
This week they released a Code of Conduct to Promote SAFE(R) Workplaces in the Performing Arts which NPR’s Michelle Mercer describes as, “an aspirational document that helps define sexual harassment and consent for the unusual workplaces and unique circumstances of the performing arts, offering clarity and tools for anyone who witnesses or experiences harassment.”
Greenleaf Music is proud to support the Code of Conduct in all of the work that we do.
We hope you’ll work to implement it in your community.
Please consider getting involved and supporting their efforts. We can all work towards positive change.
