Coastal Harmony Leadership Statement

June 20, 2020 - 2:53pm -- Lizzie Green

Coastal Harmony Region 9 fully supports the Sweet Adelines International Guiding Principles which promote inclusivity and reject discrimination in any form.  We are formalizing our pledge in the following statement:

"Coastal Harmony Region 9 stands against racism, bigotry, and prejudice of any kind.  We stand with our friends in the Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) community.  We recognize our organization’s responsibility to acknowledge that the barbershop style of music has roots in the African American culture. We also acknowledge the role that barbershop music has played in contributing to institutional racism.  We are committed to learning from the past and to moving forward with resolve.
