    Undergraduate Production stands with the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. The senseless hate crime on March 16, 2021 in Atlanta — the murder of eight people, among them Daoyou Feng, Hyun Jung Grant, Suncha Kim, Soon Chung Park, Xiaojie Tan, and Yong Ae Yue — is part of a sharp rise in anti-Asian violence, prejudice, and discrimination over the last year. We acknowledge that this harm is not new, but part of our nation’s long history of violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders through white supremacy, racism, and sexism.

    We are adding additional resources to our resource page, and encourage our community to engage with us and each other as we all confront all the challenges our present creates for our future.

    Additionally, we encourage everyone to reach out for support when needed.

  • June 2020

    We in Undergraduate Production cannot adequately express the horror and sadness of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Rayshard Brooks, and countless other documented and undocumented acts of violence against black bodies. Each instance is an unjust taking of a life by a system that, by its nature, harbors racism and political- and social-sanctioned violence against the black community. We must all do our part to confront these injustices head-on, and to lift up the voices in our community that have been marginalized.  Undergraduate Production stands in solidarity with the black community today, as we continue our work in supporting student art-makers.

    Black Lives Matter.

    We have created a new resource page that holds a repository of resources for those looking to learn, looking to engage, or looking for inspiration as we work together towards the shared goal of lasting change. We invite members of our community to contact us with additional resources that you would like to see shared as we encourage continued discourse and artistic expression.
