MONDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2017
GIBNEY DANCE: AGNES VARIS PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

VIP pre-event with Tony-award winning playwright & performer Sarah Jones

Program will include a performance from actor Brandon Victor Dixon, currently starring in Suzan Lori Parks' Fucking A, and most recently, in the Broadway production of Hamilton as Aaron Burr. 

This event is an opportunity for you to learn more about the work CPD is doing across the nation to resist and fight back against the Trump administation's policies of hate and division. It is a tangible way to support the work we are doing, with our network of partners, to empower and activate the communities most impacted by injustice and inequality. Support us as we stand together to fight for a democracy where all Americans have a voice and the opportunity to participate fully and equally in economic and civic life.
