Walk in Their Shoes

An antiracism framework for artists & creative leaders

The purpose of the Walk in Their Shoes (WITS) Framework is to offer a pragmatic approach for you to navigate next steps to address equity and justice. It is meant to provide context and just enough structure as you find your own rhythm in this work. 

Call To Action

New to antiracism? Have you been around this work for a while now, but are finally ready to take your personal work more seriously? Do you find yourself overwhelmed with the severity of racism and confused by where to start? Here we offer clarity, direction, and outcomes.

WITS Pledge

As the nation reckons with America’s original sin of racism, many are now doing this work. Various calls-to-actions may even seem to contradict one another. We want to be clear what it means to be part of the Walk in Their Shoes Ally group. There’s just one requirement to be successful here:

Make a commitment to identify 3 actionable and sustainable anti-racist practices within six months geared toward meaningful change. 

We Support You


We will not let our members go at it alone if you do not want to. CA is providing wrap-around services to help you navigate along the way.

- Lisa Scails

Executive Director, Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut
