ON THE FRONT LINES: Ordinary People. Extraordinary Efforts
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
What does justice look like? Is peace sustainable? How can we address what’s wrong and build on what’s right? Americans are in the midst of a defining moment: racial tensions are high, children are sacrificed to gun violence, protest erupts from civilians and the police, and the media sensationalizes with stories that divide. What can we do to heal our communities? How can we actively engage in efforts toward positive social change? Join us for an invigorating conversation with members of our community who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of justice and the establishment of peace.
