ACTRA stands in solidarity with the Black community

We call for action to end the systemic racism, oppression, violence and discrimination against our Black sisters and brothers that exists here in Canada and around the world.

Changing our culture takes a collective voice. We commit to being one of those voices and will not stay silent in the face of these racialized injustices.

ACTRA is proud to represent Canadian performers and will continue to advocate for equality for our Black performers. As storytellers, it is important for our Black members to use their talents to connect with people and have a voice in how their stories are represented on screen for the world to see and hear.

We will continue to listen and advocate for our Black members to ensure their stories are heard and seen. We will also do our part to raise our voices to ensure real inclusion is part of Canada’s diverse cultural fabric.
