It’s all about connecting now. Nothing else matters. What we do, how we treat each other… can be contemplated and acted upon at your own table. We always have a choice:

It’s now in the hands of the citizens of this nation and the world as to how we want to treat our neighbors. Those in power are clearly using the suffering of others to manipulate fear ‘of the other.’ Those who live amongst us and those who have no choice other then to flee violence, starvation, drought or war are mirrors of our very selves. We would likely connect to them through the history of our own family migration stories if we took the time to sit, ask questions, contemplate and share. This is what we are now asking you to do at events where you invite others to join you at tables throughout the coming year.

At The Global Theatre Project we are putting into your hands instructions and tools for inspiring empathetic action. As many of you know we have been developing the Creative Corps for quite awhile now. There is no better time to launch and mobilize this effort then on a day where citizens across this nation are protesting the horrific treatment of children and families seeking asylum in the United States.

We invite you – whether you are a theatre artist, an educator, a member of a religious organization or of your local women’s or men’s club – to click on this link to learn more. You will find specific and clear instructions for creating a community-engaged event that intends to both humanize our fellow global travelers and support those working on reunification of the separated families as a national priority. Because there is no more basic truth in difficult times than #FamiliesBelongTogether and for us, at The Global Theatre Project, that means the Human Family as well.

This project can be done very simply. Please click the link to learn more.
