Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement
As an organization that operates in a city that is majority Black and a county where Black residents make up 20% of the population, Flint Handmade affirms that Black Lives Matter. We seek to act in solidarity with the Black community and strive to offer equitable representation and access across all Flint Handmade programming. To this end, Flint Handmade will ensure that 20% of our featured artisans are people of color.
Flint Handmade also proudly supports the queer community in Genesee County and is committed to featuring LGBTQIA+ artisans.
We believe that artistic, educational and cultural revitalization in Flint and Genesee County can only happen when we make sure everyone in our community feels safe, seen, welcomed and empowered to participate.
