Theatre of The Oppressed comes to the Border

Posted by on August 25, 2011 in Discuss-Debate | 3 comments

Had a great planning meeting this morning with John Valdez, Sharon Allen and the new president of MEChA. The U.S. – Mexico Border Coalition conference will be amazing. We are hoping to form a group to do Theatre of the Oppressed work with folks in Ciudad Juarez Mexico – the most violent city in the world.
