Statement from the Board: July 2020

Dear Members: 

Change is a constant in today's society, and we are witnessing history in the making. People are being called to address racism and other injustices and to be better, to acknowledge the injustices committed against all marginalized communities and to help heal the wounds inflicted by the generations that came before us, up to and including today. We are answering that call.

We at the Lakeside Players renew our commitment to our members and the community at large to be a safe place for ALL persons. In our 30 year history, we have witnessed acts of prejudice and racism as well as acts of kindness and compassion. We commit to acting on behalf of those whose voices have been systematically silenced. The Lakeside Players acknowledges that it can no longer stand by while our Black, Indigenous, LGBTQ2S+ and other communities continue to face discrimination. As such, we feel we have a duty and responsibility to speak out; to provoke thoughtful discussion, to educate, and to promote social justice, as we have always done.

We support your right to peaceful protest and share in your quest for freedom from oppression. We will always be by your side. We recognize that we must do better, to educate ourselves and others, to assist in the move away from past stereotypes. As a theatre organization that is member/community driven, we renew our dedication to accessibility and inclusion. We will continue to address our issues as they are identified and listen to our community, engaging and acting on social issues of the day. We commit to our community that we will be inclusive in all that we do, and we will continue to acknowledge our dedication to improvement and change as required.

The Board of directors,

Lakeside Players, Ottawa
