#PaythePorch is a grassroots effort initiated by an informal group of white, female, cis-gender advocates who feel strongly about leveraging our privilege and connections to build a more equitable arts and culture landscape in Massachusetts. 

While this effort has been part of an ongoing conversation with the leaders of the Front Porch Arts Collective about how we might utilize current public dialogue to amplify support for their vital work, it is not directed by them. Together with our allies and partners, #PaythePorch seeks to build a network of support to ensure The Porch is not only able to survive this difficult moment, but thrive.
