United in Pursuit of Equity and Justice
Today’s guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin reminds all of us of the importance of equity in justice, regardless of what makes us different. Recent events from the murder of George Floyd, to anti-Asian hate crimes occurring across the country, to the rise in acts of gun violence, all keep us focused on the need to be united against injustice, intolerance, and disenfranchisement. We must live together as one people with dignity and respect for all. We join with the SF Ballet leadership team, staff, artists, crew, and musicians to stand together in pursuing a more just and inclusive world for this and future generations.
