Most people record their political rants in their cars. Here at Broadkill Writers Resort we record our musings on the roof.
It's been 11 days since making this video, but we wanted to ensure everything was in place before going public with these announcements.
Please watch the video and find more information below, or if you dislike video and just want the cheat sheet condensed version skip ahead to the text below.
"All arts are considered at one time or another subversive. All individual expression is dangerous to a status quo meant to serve only a few select individuals. Whatever your song is, whatever contribution you have, whatever creation unique to you that can be brought forth…do it. Sing it. Bring it. Because nobody but you can."
"Make no mistake, we're seeing progress being made. But also understand: while a knee moved from the neck to the chest is an improvement it still suffocates you, just more slowly. What I keep emphasizing to my son is that we're in for a long struggle. It's not about what happens now, it's about what happens next. And then after that. This is generations of work in the making. Beyond reimagining policing and holding those who are responsible for decades of criminal behavior accountable, we need to reimagine ourselves."
Accountability isn't just for bad actors in our society, though, and our failure to realize that is a major contributor to the problems we face. We all need to contribute to the solution, to rebuilding, to restructuring, to sustain ourselves and the communities that make our existence possible.
In order to support the communities Broadkill Writers Resort and its sibling companies are based in we will immediately institute the following changes:

5% Organization: Diverse Writers and Artists of Speculative Fiction Mission: Community outreach, education about, and resources for writers and artists of color Rating: I serve as the Vice President and am a bit biased More info: Our old website is down with a new one under construction, but you can find information about us through any of the organizations we've held workshops for
