Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility
Statement of Inclusion
PVTC is committed to creating an artistic space where all feel welcome, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, creed, disability, financial circumstance, gender identity, or sexual orientation. We acknowledge the historical biases that have left marginalized communities out and recognize that equity can only be fully achieved by addressing these biases. We strive to uplift and promote all communities in our artistic endeavors.
Located in the midst of beautiful redwood forest 40 minutes south of San Francisco, Portola Valley rests on the unceded lands of the Ramaytush Ohlone people. Portola Valley Theatre Conservatory recognizes that we currently benefit from living and working on their traditional homelands, and we affirm their sovereign rights as first peoples.
The Association of Ramaytush Ohlone is a great resource to learn more about the history of the Ramaytush people and to engage with the Ohlone community’s ongoing work. For those not indigenous to this land, you can also pay the Yanukin Land Tax to support Ramaytush preservation and rematriation efforts.
