Event description

Description

As part of Local Theater Company’s commitment to engaging theatergoers—and new-to-theater audiences—in productions and conversations that spark camaraderie, learning, and contemplation, Hard Talks has been developed by Artistic Director Pesha Rudnick and Outreach Coordinator Steve San Luis to talk, openly and safely, about issues of rape culture and sexual assault in our community. The talks are being presented simultaneously with our fall production of The Rape of the Sabine Women, by Grace B. Matthias.

This event is offered free of charge thanks to support from the Boulder Arts Commission.

A Local Town Hall: Rolling Back Title IX

Here’s the truth: Boulder has a complicated history with Title IX, which guarantees no person in the United States can, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. Now, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has recommended rolling back Title IX regulation. Is it good for students and educators? Experts in the field will discuss their response to the Department of Education and will answer questions about creating and maintaining a culture of safety in Boulder.

Panelists: John Clune, Attorney
Chris Ford, Attorney
Linda Shoemaker, University of Colorado Regent
Valerie Simons, University of Colorado Title IX Coordinator

Moderator: Helayne Jones, Former President, Boulder Valley Board of Education
