Broadway for Black Lives Matter was a tremendous success. Attended by 1,000 and live streamed across the world to 10,000, boasting some of Broadway and Music's finest talent, along with the country's leading community activists and leaders, NYPD officers, policy reformists, professors, clergymen and students, the evening marked the beginning of a conversation of social injustice and a need for action and change. After the event, the collective took some time to regroup, reflect, and reevaluate our purpose. We wanted to grow and expand our reach. We needed to find a way to use our voices to effect social change, to encourage our community to act, and to continue to make the movement move.
We were the Broadway for Black Lives Matter Collective. We are the Broadway Advocacy Coalition. Our mission?
- to educate and enlighten our community on its rights, roles, and responsibilities.
- to engage and empower our community, through open forums and discussions, concerts, media, and service, in order to bridge the gap between artistry and activism as we move towards positive social change.
