Programs

CCDBR partners with various organizations to operate programs throughout the year. Current programs include:

Acting Free

CCDBR is pairing with Raven theater to work with students at Senn High School to develop and write performance pieces on the Bill of Rights. Weeks of learning, writing, and rehearsal culminate in an end-of-year on-stage performance in front of fellow students. Teachers, students, and coaches work together in this unusual educational effort targeted at the young people whose future is most compromised by the current onslaught on freedom.

FOIA Yourself

In conjunction with national efforts by Defending Rights and Dissent, CCDBR is planning to implement Freedom of Information Act workshops in the near future. Check back for more information!
