The Crescent City Sound Chorus, a Sweet Adelines International chapter, has developed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force. This group is dedicated to taking the necessary steps needed in becoming more accepting and inclusive of all its chorus members--potential, current, and past. As a chorus, we have always embraced anyone who walks through our doors with open arms, and want those who invest their time in us to feel welcome and accepted. Our goal is to make sure we are doing everything within our power to see that ANY person feels this way, whether in our audience, a visitor, or as a chorus member!
The Task Force developed a statement that was issued on the Crescent City Sound Chorus' social media accounts. You can read this statement here. This is our jumping off point. We know through this statement, three things have become abundantly clear: 1. We must commit long term to this work. 2. Sweet Adelines International leaders and chorus members affiliated with the organization are committed to supporting each other in this work. 3. That work starts within and must begin, in earnest, now.
DEI Task Force Members
(Co-Chairs): Anne Cafiero and Sue Englebert
