La Donna Musicale and Rumbarroco take seriously our responsibility to stand against sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination based on race, gender, creed, disability, age, or sexual orientation within the early music community. We are committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment where everyone can freely participate and experience the joy of early music. Our core values prioritize equity, integrity, and respect for all members, ensuring that they feel valued and protected. We strive to foster a community that embraces diversity, equality, and inclusion, recognizing the unique contributions and experiences of each individual.
We also take this opportunity to acknowledge that Boston, MA, resides on the traditional territory of the Mashpee Wampanoag, Aquinnah Wampanoag, Nipmuc, and Massachusett tribal nations. We recognize and draw inspiration from this land while understanding the painful history of genocide and forced removal experienced by Indigenous peoples. As a social impact organization, we believe in the importance of territory or land acknowledgment. We take our responsibility seriously to recognize the history of colonialism as we strive for a safe and inclusive environment where all members can experience the joy of early music with equity, integrity, and respect.
Furthermore, we are dedicated to accessibility, ensuring that our events and activities are inclusive and accommodating for persons with disabilities. Together, we stand united against harassment, discrimination, and exclusion, working towards building a vibrant and inclusive early music community. Through dialogue, education, and accountability, we aim to create lasting change and a supportive space where every individual feels valued, celebrated, and empowered.
