The 2nd annual Conference on Community Theater for Social Justice Action conference is presented by InterAction, in partnership with the Civil Rights Heritage Center, Shakespeare at Notre Dame, Notre Dame Community Relations, the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County, and Eco Owl Press. The Kroc Institute is excited to partner with InterAction, a South Bend area nonprofit co-founded by two University of Notre Dame peace studies alumni, Deandra Cadet, B.A. '15, and Taeyin ChoGlueck, B.A. '14, to support this event.
This year’s conference will focus on the theme, Uplifting Young People of Color (YPOC). The conference welcomes students, activists, community organizers, theater practitioners, educators, and community members to strategize on how we can uplift YPOC in our communities, theaters, and institutions.
