“Community Justice Forum” featuring Donna-Michelle St. Bernard, Luke Reece and Yvette Nolan
May 4 @ 12:00 am - May 16 @ 12:00 am EDTFree
MAY 4-16, 2021
Join us for two weeks of community conversation. New Harlem is workshopping The First Stone, a play drawn from the stories of child abductees exploited in combat. The story is about the communities from which these children are stolen, and the determination to bring them home. This work requires us to consider the implications of our approaches to justice, beyond broad principles. We look to our communities for acts of restitution, restoration, reconciliation – at global, national institutional and interpersonal levels.
We want to consider how theory around justice manifests in our collective and individual lived experiences. We want to be challenged, informed, driven into reflection and action. The Justice Forum sets the table for a number of critical (and digital) conversations.
ASL interpretation is provided for all live sessions.
REGISTRATION is limited to 30 active participants in the room, but broadcasts are open to unlimited online audience.
