Call to Action Submissions
Join the Conversation
Since the brutal murder of George Floyd, our industry has been called upon to join the fight against systemic racism, police brutality and social injustice.
To spark necessary change within our industry, we are turning our platform over to you and invite you to share your own story. Whether you have directly experienced the above, or are actively constructing or facilitating a platform to dismantle the injustices particular to Black lives, we welcome your original words, your concerns and perspectives. How can our membership increase our industry's understanding and acknowledgment of systemic racism? What action(s) must be taken to reconstruct our attitudes and institutions? How do we hold those in positions of power accountable?
Please submit an original 1-2 minute video that may be featured on our website or across our social media platforms. Once we receive your video, we will contact you for permission to use it.
