The senseless and tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis while in police custody is the latest of countless acts of violence against communities of color by law enforcement in the United States and another dark chapter in the sad history of American inequity.
These are times of great pain and grief for Los Angeles and our country as we respond to the injustices that have long haunted our nation. The Latino Theater Company is committed to tell the stories of our community, to serve the underserved and the marginalized, to give voice to the voiceless, and provide hope for a better and more just tomorrow by exorcising our suffering through the power of theater. We are consumed by rage and sadness. As we mourn another tragic loss of life, we must push for justice, change and discover hope for a better and united future. Black Lives Matter!
