Theater of Witness with Survivors of Torture
- Hector Aristizabal's nonprofit organization, ImaginAction, presents "We Are
Here," Theater of Witness with torture survivors from Cameroon, El
Salvador, Guatemala, Russia, and Uganda. These courageous men and women
will tell their own stories in their own words--what they tried to
accomplish in their own countries, why they had to escape, how they came to
the US and how, after losing everything, they are working to rebuild their
lives in Los Angeles.
I hope you can join us as we celebrate these extraordinary men and women.
Two nights only -- free admission and no reservations needed.
