People’s State of the Union Story Circle

Sat, Feb 3, 4-5:30pm
SF Playhouse Rehearsal Space, SF
Free

In January of most years, the President delivers a State of the Union Address highlighting the past year and suggesting priorities for the coming year. It’s a broadcast from one to many. But democracy is a conversation, not a monologue. Understanding the state of our union takes We the People reflecting in our own communities on our challenges and opportunities locally, nationally, and globally.

The People’s State of the Union has two main parts: Story Circles, and a collaboratively composed Poetic Address to the Nation. Story Circles are invitations for participants to share their own take on the state of the union by reflecting on simple prompts such as hope, belonging/not belonging, the state of the nation/communities.
