Osh Ghanimah, Broadway For All Founder and President said “December 9th was a historic moment for our organization and the future of a more inclusive American stage and screen. Gathering together, under one tent, led by the inimitable Tony Shalhoub—and our trailblazing honorees, industry artists, and a diverse audience—one thing was made very clear: our mission to support ALL people coming together across ALL backgrounds to create art for ALL people is a movement whose time has come”.
