#HereToo Project


About the Show:

#HereToo Project is an ongoing series of devised plays amplifying the voices of gun violence survivors and youth activists. Using an open-source data base of interviews and other source material, each community can add their own local content to existing material, to make a version of #HereToo that speaks to its local concerns, events and activism. www.heretooproject.com
