We are committed to being an anti-racist organization

WXXI, the Little Theatre, and CITY News are anti-racist organizations, dedicated to the principles of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. 

To achieve this, we established a DEI Council that includes staff, board members, and volunteers. The Council oversees the development of our organizations as community leaders on issues of racial equity. Council “Change Teams” will ensure a DEI focus in the areas of Capacity, Content, Engagement, and Structural Inequality.

We commit clearly and definitively to diversity and inclusivity that reflect our antiracist objectives in our staff and leadership, content development, and community engagement. We will affirm and amplify diverse voices and stories. We will do the hard work of looking inside and outside of our organizations.
