Dialogues on Diversity is the nation’s premier social justice, diversity awareness theater company performing more than 100 Performances, Lectures and Workshops in N. America annually. He has created a range of performance, lecture, game, and workshop platforms designed to help individuals and organizations address issues of cultural difference in a more open, healthy and respectful way.
His approach is to bring “Compassionate Activism” into our discussions and actions around social change. Only through understanding the mechanisms of bias and oppression can we work to dismantle them. Too few Americans know the stories of deep, complex and sometime, shameful stories that make us this beautiful experiment.
Learning our collective stories is the only way to change hearts and bring lasting change lives
