Friends and Allies,
The Rachel Corrie Foundation is pleased to announce our March 16th event honoring Rachel’s stand in Gaza. Every year we remember her on this date with activities encompassing three values she held closely: action, education, and community. We hope that you will join us, share our event widely, and help us welcome actress Ashley Malloy at the Olympia Ballroom to headline our afternoon and evening events!
Please join us Sunday, March 16th, for...
...Action: A Theater of the Oppressed Workshop led by Ashley Malloy. With Image Theatre techniques, we will create instant tableaus that provoke, incite, and encourage lively discussion and debate around issues of the Occupation. No previous theatrical experience is needed - only an open mind! 2-3:30 PM
...Education: Ashley Malloy performs an abbreviated version of the play My Name is Rachel Corrie edited from Rachel’s original writings by Director Alan Rickman and Guardian journalist Katharine Viner. 4 PM
...Community: Our shared potluck meal - a March 16th Olympia tradition! Good food and company will be accompanied by discussion of the play My Name is Rachel Corrie, theater as resistance, and the cultural and academic boycott of Israel. Ashley Malloy will be joined by panelist Nada Elia, from the Palestinian Students Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott, and others. 5-7 PM
This free event is open to the public. Donations at the door are welcome. Bring food to share! To lend support as a co-sponsoring individual or organization, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (360) 754-3998.
