Dismantle Racial Bias, or Participate in It: Agnes Gund's Call to People With Privilege
"When it comes to racial bias, you either participate in it actively or through silence, or you use your power and privilege to dismantle it. Each day you make this choice – when you serve as a juror, when you call the police or see someone else call and when and for whom you vote. If oppression happens, then we are allowing it to happen and we are all in the position to stop it."
This is the call Agnes Gund, founder and chair of the Art for Justice Fund, which invests in artists and advocates working together to reform the nation’s legal system, and President Emerita of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), makes to people with privilege addressing how they need to choose every day between dismantling racial bias, or participating in it.
