Event Description:

Talk It Out: A Community Conversation to Fix School Discipline, is a new program designed to build bridges between legislators and a community of students and educational advocates. Cornerstone Theater Company has partnered with the California Endowment to address the health consequences of overuse of suspension, expulsion and zero-tolerance polices across California. We are so excited to share this play with Kern County, as we continue to explore the issues surrounding suspension, expulsion, and zero tolerance in California.

Cornerstone Theater Company is a multiethnic, ensemble-based theater company. For 26 years, we have produced socially relevant and thought-provoking plays that bring together the artistry of professional and community collaborators to build bridges between and within diverse communities. We offer people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures the opportunity to tell their stories through theater. Through our art-making, we have worked in hundreds of communities and reached tens of thousands of individuals. We have developed and produced more than 80 original plays and trained over 2000 students in our unique methodology.
