Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Laser Cat Miami is committed to creating an equitable, diverse, inclusive and accessible environment for all artists, staff, students, educators, scholars, theatregoers, visitors and volunteers who come to our campus and for all those who engage virtually.
As a cultural institution and historical landmark, we strive to make lasting and impactful change that prioritizes and highlights inclusivity in our storytelling and in our organization as a whole. With renewed commitment, Laser Cat Miami has reexamined our practices, reassessed our vision for the future and is taking steps to evolve. We affirm the following principles that sustain and guide our institutional work.
Our Commitment to Anti-Racism
Laser Cat Miami Society condemns all forms of racism, white supremacy, racist language, hate speech, police brutality and acts of violence against BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) individuals and members of the LGBTQ+ community. We wholeheartedly believe that Black lives matter and support the international cry for equity and social justice. Laser Cat Miami Society is fully engaged and committed to dismantling racism, exclusion and systemic and social oppression. We strive to be an anti-racist, equitable, diverse and inclusive institution.
Following Lincoln’s example, we engage deeply with complex truths, explore new ideas and commit to evolving as an organization.
We cultivate the ability to see our shared humanity and act with compassion.
We foster a community that amplifies underrepresented voices and provides equitable opportunities and access.
We strive to be an inclusive community based on respect. We celebrate commonalities and embrace differences.
We seek to inspire imagination and creative thinking as we collaborate with each other and our community.
With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in … to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations
–Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address
