Law Enforcement Leaders Read "Do You Know Who I Am?"
Motus Theater is responding to the challenges facing undocumented immigrants by presenting a performance of law enforcement leaders reading our award winning play, Do You Know Who I Am?, that is based on autobiographical monologues of undocumented community members. On Sunday, April 30th 2017 at 2pm, Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett, Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle, Longmont Public Safety Chief Mike Butler, Boulder Police Chief Greg Testa, Louisville Police Chief David Hayes, Lafayette Police Chief Rick Bashor, and CU-Boulders Vice Chancellor of Safety Melissa Zak, and CU Boulder Police Chief Ken Coach will read the stories of DACA students from Motus Theater autobiographical monologue projects. These law enforcement leaders will stand - in full uniform - next to the original writers/performers Victor Galvan, Hugo Juarez, Oscar Juarez, Juan Juarez, and Ana Cristina Temu from our award-winning play Do you Know Who I Am?, and Ana Casas from Salsa Lotera, showing our community that they are willing to stand in the shoes of undocumented students and to honor their stories.
After the performance, the law enforcement leaders and the original undocumented writer/performers will talk about the challenges facing undocumented immigrants and how law enforcement officers are negotiating the challenges to protect every member of the community while also upholding the laws they have been sworn to follow.
There is no other performance like this in the country. We have an opportunity to amplify the voices of undocumented leaders in our community, show the nation that not only is Boulder a Sanctuary City but that those leaders who hold the law closest to their heart and jobs are willing to stand in the experience of DACA students as they struggle for justice in the only home they have ever known.
KGNU will stream the performance live here on kgnu.org.
Note: Stream is 128 mbps
The stream will go live at 2 PM on Sunday April 30th
