The Jazz Education Network was founded to support and sustain the art form that was born out of the legacy of black resistance. Our music calls us to speak out and actively work on behalf of justice and equality. We share in the pain and disgust of watching another black citizen murdered in public view as they pleaded for their life. JEN stands with #blacklivesmatter and all other organizations and individuals who are protesting the unrelenting and corrupt racist system that does not value black Americans in our society.
