The Vixens En Garde stand alongside everyone seeking justice for Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Dreasjon Reed, Elijah McClain, George Floyd, Nina Pop, Tony McDade, and too many others in the Black community. Black lives are worthy. Black lives are essential. Black lives matter. Black lives have always mattered.
In our commitment to build a more equitable and anti-racist company, we must first take responsibility for our share in the injustices happening around the world. We call-in our colleagues and fellow stage combat community members to address and acknowledge their own participation. We are privileged and have benefited as a result of this privilege. We, the Vixens, plan to use this advantage to recognize where we have fallen short and how we can do better.
10 YEARS, AND COUNTING...
A magnificent thank you to all our fans and friends for making these past ten years so wild and wonderful! Here's to ten more!
