Broadway Advocacy Coalition in partnership with Columbia Law School presents:
The Invitation: Monthly Series
BAC, in partnership with Columbia Law School, is building a monthly series to promote civic education, community outreach, self care and liberation, social equality in our neighborhoods and the importance of unity in the pursuit of immediate social change. This series will blend song, dance, spoken word, personal reflection, and poetry with dialogue that draws on history, advocacy, policy and research to build new possibilities for fundamental change.
Part II: American Hangover
Donald Trump is our next President. Many of us sat there on the evening of November 8th in disbelief. The morning after we learned that Approximately 59% of our Country decided that Donald Trump was the better candidate. It has become extremely clear that there is a deep divide of beliefs and ethics in the United States. Let’s talk about why that is and the historical context that supports this division. This election has changed the way we talk to each other. What tools do we need to feel equipped to have conversations with someone whom you fundamentally disagree with? There’s a lot at stake with this new administration and apart of what we feel is fear and uncertainty. Whats going to happen with gun laws, immigration, gay marriage, education and crime and safety? The American Hangover will use artistic collaborations between dialogue, panel discussions and performance to educate and empower the public to continue creating the world we imagine in spite of the disappointment of this election. Let’s gather on December 4th to listen, participate and revitalize the movement of radical empathy and equality.
Doors open at 6:30pm
