"Seattle JazzED was founded to teach jazz, a Black American art form born out of Black resistance to systemic oppression and exclusion. Jazz calls us to not only speak up when injustice is committed, but to actively work on behalf of a better tomorrow. We share in the collective and individual pain and devastation of Black Americans murdered by police officers and fellow citizens. Seattle JazzED stands with Black Lives Matter and all other people and organizations protesting and working to end the racist treatment of Black people in our country. We recognize that this fight cannot rest only on the shoulders of the Black community. This work must be done by every person who believes in human rights."
