COLORADO UP: Create an Inclusive Film and Media Industry in Colorado
Colorado is a visionary ecosystem connecting diverse individuals across myriad industries. As a state, we strive to be a leader in innovation and creativity. One of the core tenets of leadership is inclusivity, and in holding true to this value, it is time to call out all forms of systemic oppression.
For far too long, we have been complacent with a culture that silences or discredits those who speak the truth about hostile and abusive behaviors — No longer. Toleration of harassment, discrimination, and assault must end. The survivors and victims must be heard, believed, and supported. Wrongdoers must be held accountable.
We, the undersigned citizens of Colorado, stand in solidarity against these injustices and vow to prevent, report, and one day eliminate abusive power inequities. We can only achieve equality, respect, and dignity for all through a conscious effort across our communities.
We are Colorado, uniting for progress.
