Join us for The Laramie Project on Sunday
What is The Laramie Project? On Oct. 6, 1998, Matthew Shepard was beaten and left to die tied to a fence in the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. He died six days later. His torture and murder became a watershed historical moment in America that highlighted many of the fault lines in our culture. A month after the murder the members of Tectonic Theater Project traveled to Laramie and conducted interviews with the people of the town. From these interviews they wrote the play The Laramie Project.
The next general meeting for the Social Action Team will be on Sunday, May 7 from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Mark your calendars and join us! The meeting will be a potluck lunch, so please bring a dish to share. The food is great and so is the discussion, and we start on time.
