BMCM+AC believes that Black Lives Matter. 

We are committed to critically evaluating how our organization can confront implicit biases and are looking ahead to long term changes to ensure equity within our museum, community collaborations, exhibitions, curation, and programs. 

We have work to do, and pledge to practice deep listening and to offer transparency as we develop an action plan. We invite feedback and are committed to centering the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in this process.

Below you will find a growing list of resource guides for anti-racism, action steps, organizations to support, and grant opportunities for communities most affected by police brutality, systemic racism, and white supremacy. For additional concrete steps that you can take, we invite you to visit this collaborative Regional Resources spreadsheet which outlines methods to advocate for policy change, Black-led organizations to support, and anti-racism resources to continue your self-education.
