All are welcome here
Hoffman Academy Portland is committed to creating welcoming and inclusive spaces for people of all ages, religions, races, gender identities, gender expressions, sexual orientations, family/child care configurations, abilities, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
We recognize that doing this means swimming actively against the current of our country’s government, social structures, normative thought systems, and general culture.
This is based on our understanding, which we are grateful to have gained from the educational labor of the Black Lives Matter movement, that systemic racism, sexism, heteronormativity, and many other harmful thought systems are baked into the very creation and history of the United States and have yet to be fully dismantled.
We’ll answer any questions and help you find the perfect time to start your musical journey!
