Join us for a FREE reading of Uniform Justice, a play about an urban neighborhood where community members and police search for solutions to the violence that afflicts their streets and the conflicts and suspicions that divide them. Set in Memphis, TN and inspired by true stories, Uniform Justice comes to Cleveland at a pivotal time during national conversations on police and community relations. A production of Intersections International’s theatre company TE’A (Theatre, Engagement, & Action), Uniform Justice moves us beyond superficial conversation and encourages meaningful connections in the search for change, healing, and justice. A facilitated dialogue will follow the reading.
