Through our #JustArts initiative, the Public Justice Center occasionally collaborates with artists, musicians, dancers, and theaters to bring attention to pressing challenges facing our communities. This month, we’re proud to serve as a Converging Minds partner with Convergence Theatre to foster conversations about immigration. Following the July 15 performance of A New Nation, PJC attorney Sally Dworak-Fisher will facilitate a discussion on the injustices that immigrants suffer in our regional economy.

A New Nation is the latest performance piece generated through Convergence Theatre’s Guerrilla Theatre Works model, a synthesis of performance art, poetry, interviews and physical theatre. A New Nation probes responses to the immigration crisis in the US and current perceptions of the stranger, amplifying diverse voices to challenge fear and strengthen our sense of home. The journey of an unaccompanied minor, a deportation notice and everyday life in a new land are glimpses of the narratives that move beyond the boundaries of the theatre itself.

We hope you can join us on July 15 for the play and discussion.
