Victory! This is one victory in a long fight for our museums to be accountable to the communities they are supposed to serve. Kanders stepped down after months of action and solidarity among activists, community groups, artists, scholars, museum workers, and those who want their museums to be held to ethical standards.
Let us celebrate now and continue the work.
