#ChangeIndustries is a Color Of Change initiative that secures commitments from cultural production companies to hold them accountable for advancing racial justice for Black people. These commitments address anti-Black racism and inequity with the goal of systemic change in the three #ChangeIndustries verticals: #ChangeMusic, #ChangeFashion, and #ChangeHollywood.
CONCRETE STEPS TO DRIVE MEANINGFUL CHANGE
Each #ChangeIndustries vertical empowers industry leaders to embark on a Roadmap for change —a path and an opportunity for evolution—that draws from Color Of Change’s deep knowledge and understanding of anti-Black racism in our country to create a nuanced and specific racial justice guide. Each Roadmap contains milestones, KPIs, resources and reporting to guide allies in their commitments to advance racial justice and change the culture. This work is all in the service of winning systemic changes in policy, culture, and practices that increase equity and reduce harmful impact on Black people. The Roadmap outlines the steps required to eradicate anti-Blackness in cultural production.
The five universal steps are:
Change will not happen if we rely on an either-or approach, of good intention alone or as a response to criticism. Change requires resources to support transformation. Every #ChangeIndustries vertical provides resources to help people and organizations who are committed to implementing the steps in the roadmap.
