On November 11, Quanice Floyd wrote a necessary critique of Americans for the Arts.

On December 11, the AftA Arts Education Council wrote a response statement in full support of Quanice Floyd.  Their statement identifies the action steps AftA should immediately take.

TAMA stands in solidarity with Quanice Floyd and the AftA Arts Education Council.

What can you do to show your support?

  • Share and like the solidarity statement posted to TAMA’s FB and IG accounts. 
  • Write colleagues and make sure they get involved.
  • If you are a member, cancel your membership with AftA, and urge others to do so.
  • Request the incoming Biden-Harris administration remove Mr. Lynch and replace him with a BIPOC arts leader.
  • Participate in TAMA’s TA Cafe to learn more about how to advocate.  Activate your artist through advocacy!
