Leadership at the MIA has a responsibility to steward tax and philanthropic dollars in a way that transforms their rhetoric about inclusion, equity and community into action by safeguarding their workers livelihood and acknowledging the progress the MIA has made is due to their labor.

As a former BIPOC staff member over a decade ago, I know these aren’t new issues. I had hoped Mia had made better progress by now, but today is the next best time for action.
