    ArticleTransgender Murders, A National Crisis

    In this Season of Trump, it is easy to miss news stories that speak volumes of who we are as a society and how we need to shift our priorities if all God’s children are to be guaranteed the safety, security and access to opportunity that so many of us take for granted. Voices that have been historically under-represented become... more...

    ArticleJesus' Mother Isn't Gonna Like That

    One of the things I love most about being Catholic is our unapologetic devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. I’ve always envisioned her to be the ultimate mother—she’d have to be wouldn’t she? God chose her to be the mother of our Savior. And by all accounts in the Bible, Mary was pretty awesome.... more...

    ArticleThe Inner Tug

    It really does seem hopeless sometimes. Everyday, I open the door, pick up the paper, open it and think, “What are we going to do”? The stories keep coming, and they keep getting worse. There is intractable conflict in every area on every level – from our devastating and deadly crisis in the rule of law, to the deep and... more...

    ArticleCelebrating the Wisdom and Warmth Prof. Abdul...

    I received an email last week from our close UPIC colleague, Junaid Ahmad, Director of the Center for Global Dialogue in Lahore, Pakistan. The email was a celebration, really, of a mutual friend and a leader in the Pakistani-American community on the West Coast, Professor Abdul Jabbar. What strikes me as I re-read his email is the... more...

    ArticleDeclaration Rights, an Idea for the Next Decade

    A week ago, we held an in-depth conversation with members of Intersections' Leadership Council and some invited guests. It was a fascinating conversation during which we examined the near-decade life of Intersections' and looked at examples of how we might move forward during our next ten years.

    ArticleThe Uniform Justice Experience, From the Tour to...

    Can theatre uncover the surface of police-community conflict? Absolutely. Because writing a play is something like opting to write a letter instead of engaging in an emotionally charged argument with someone you’re in conflict with. The kind of argument where you worry that the words won’t come out right, if at all. If only... more...

    ArticleThis is REAL Christian Persecution: Augusta...

    Christian persecution in the United States is real. It’s just not what you think. Christian persecution isn’t about having to offer birth control to women. It’s not about having to serve wedding cakes to gay and lesbian couples. Christian persecution isn’t even having people call you out when you spout... more...

    ArticleA Victim, Framed by the Media

    Shortly after the horrific tragedy at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, we were performing Uniform Justice, our play that addresses issues of community-police relations in our nation’s urban centers. The setting was an all-black congregation in Queens, New York. The hall—which would ultimately hold more than 70—was... more...

    ArticleTE'A Goes to the Midwest

    Twelve people get on a plane heading west ... and they land in Cleveland! (Where, despite the name of the popular TV show, it was not hot – 50 to 60 degrees at most).The 12 people are the TE’A Company:  nine actors, one playwright/director, one stage manager, and me, the artistic director. We were there for the last leg... more...
