Earlier this year, the We Have Voice Collective, a "new group of female and non-binary musicians in jazz and experimental music" (see stories in the New York Times and on NPR), invited music festivals, presenters, venues, educational institutions, record labels, media outlets, and other members of the music industry/ecosystem to adopt a new Code of Conduct promoting safe(r) workspaces in the performing arts.
The Code calls for "zero tolerance of harassment of any kind, including but not limited to sexual harassment and bullying."
The Redwood Jazz Alliance is proud to join dozens of other organizations in committing to uphold this Code of Conduct. It's a no-brainer. Time is indeed up.
