Wednesday, December 7, 7pm

Activism and political engagement can take many forms. In light of the current political climate in the United States it seems more important than ever to understand how to communicate social and political positions effectively on the local and national level. Join us for a discussion on mobilizing and activating individuals and communities to effect change and successfully participate in the political process.

On a designated Saturday each month, Shakespeare Aloud will host a free reading of each of Shakespeare’s 37 plays, one per month until the entire canon is complete. Community members are warmly invited to participate as readers (no experience or audition required) or as audience members. Shakespeare Aloud provides the opportunity to hear all the plays, to become readers, and to listen to and work with others. Learn more here.
