Systemic racism is a massive problem that we are 100% committed to helping dismantle.

Songtrust stands in solidarity with the Black community and is committed to working actively against racism and all forms of injustice and exclusion. In collaboration with several of our black colleagues, our leadership teams are actively exploring the best route to create long term and impactful change.
