Black Lives Matter

Pleasure Dome stands in solidarity with Black folks protesting against white supremacy, systemic racism, and police violence. We are reflecting on ways to amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous, and POC artists in our programming and acknowledge that this is an ongoing process, one that we are committed to. Together, we cry out (and email our councilors) to disarm and defund the police! BLACK LIVES MATTER. We urge you to take political and financial action right now, here are some resources to help:
