In the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the subsequent protests, museums across the country began making pledges to initiate change within their walls.
Below, we’ve collected various institutional pledges and checked in with them to see what progress they’ve made so far.
In response to the letter and public outcry, the museum posted a statement with both short- and long-term goals.
“We have no tolerance for harassment, discrimination, or abuse in any form,” the museum’s board wrote in a letter following the move.
The museum has also established its diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion committee.
