Staging the Stories Around Us

Sanctuary Stage stands by its promise to promote and defend diversity in all forms through the collaboration and participation of diverse communities working cohesively to bring unheard voices to the stage. We are pleased that the Oregon State Board of Education passed a resolution in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, declaring state education officials' commitment to anti-racism, equity, and full access to education. “We fully support Black Lives Matter as a civil rights movement that aims to combat racism and support Black individuals,” said Jim Green, Executive Director of Oregon School Boards Association. “We stand beside Black Lives Matter, as a statement of social justice and an affirmation of the value and worth of Black people.”
