The Show Must Be Paused
June 2, 2020
We stand in solidarity with the Black community, our members, and our peers in the music community. We will continue to seek understanding and search for ways that we, as an organization and members of the broader community, can do better.
Alberta Music is committed to more conversation, listening and taking long-term action in the continued fight for racial justice.
We encourage others to rise up and donate, support and educate yourselves. Together, we can make a difference.
