Embodying Change: Theater of the Oppressed for Community Action
Theater of the Oppressed (T.O.) provides tools for people to explore shared struggles, unpack their shared history and present situation, and then experiment with inventing a new future together. We use theatre and embodied physical practice to disrupt, transform, and design strategies to challenge internalized, interpersonal, and systemic oppression. Through gathering in public for an action or reflecting with our closest community members, comrades and colleagues, with T.O., we lift up invisibilized stories.

We believe all people regardless of their race, ethnicity or income deserve access to global education and global travel. We believe that as low-income people of color connect with each other across the world, global movements for social justice grow.
The world is increasingly global and interconnected and study abroad programs help people build the skills to navigate in a global society. However, people of color are disproportionately excluded from global study.
