Am I Right… to want to do more?
We sure think so! And thanks for getting on board! We’re just a small word-of-mouth project. We think the best way to help is to talk about it. Here are some ideas:
Request some of our super cool free mirror cards to help spread the word about our mission!
Next time you are approached about a part you wouldn’t feel comfortable playing, start a conversation with the casting professional or creative team.
Next time a friend or colleague is pursuing a role that you’re not sure they would be the best fit for, start a conversation.
Share our site within your professional and social networks. Use what we’ve written here as a tool. We’re here as a resource to hopefully make a tricky topic a little easier to think about.
Reach out to us. We’re happy to talk and we’re happy to help you talk to others if you need some help finding the right way to say something.
Also, consider advocating for a theater near you to produce work written for and/or by people of color, people with disabilities and transgender people. Consider advocating for non-traditional and color-conscious casting. That’s some serious ally awesomeness.
