(ONLINE) The Future Is Now!
A multilingual performance about the Census
May 1 2020
This event was originally planned as a live performance at Queens Museum for Census Day. As the situation around COVID-19 continues to evolve, the performance has been reconfigured as an online event. We invite you to join us for the Census Digital Weekend of Action by live streaming this performance on Facebook and helping us raise awareness about the 2020 Census!
Join us on Friday May 1st, at 2pm on Facebook for The Future Is Now!
Now is our chance to secure the resources and representation we deserve! Ignited by Census 2020, The Future Is Now! is a multilingual performance about the Census by the People’s Theater Project Company touring NYC’s immigrant/Latinx/POC communities to encourage each of us to stand up and be counted.
This event is part of Census Digital Weekend of Action, May 1-3, 2020. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, self-response to the 2020 Census has been extended. It is more important than ever to help everyone in our communities get counted! This weekend, help us build a groundswell of conversation on social media and in our communities to raise the prominence of the 2020 Census and the importance of self-response (by Internet, Mail, and Phone).
The Future Is Now! Is devised and performed by the People’s Theater Project Company Luna Ensemble: Claudio Barboza, Katrina Brown, Jennifer Espinoza, Devante Jeffries, Elijah Peppers, Syed Rahman, Anani Ramos, Julio Salcedo, Rocio Sanchez, Abdallah “Issac’ Sevede
