Dear Friends,

We are so excited to present award-wining actor/activist Antonio David Lyons in his solo performance "WE ARE HERE"! This provocative and poignant work will be presented virtually on our Facebook page as a Facebook Live event. It explores gender violence with an eye on how "good men" can be complicit in its perpetuation. Please join us for this stellar performance and the post show Q & A with the artist. Our co-sponsors are Dallas TRHT and Big Thought and the performance is generously funded by The State Fair of Texas. 

Meanwhile, we wish you a very happy, safe, socially distanced, productive and culture-filled year!  Oh, and if you need someplace to park some expendable income, consider a donation to us!
