This sounds like a great program. From an email:

City at Peace DC’s 2nd annual free Street Theatre tour kicks off this week in neighborhoods around the city. The program is designed to bring the conflicts and creative solutions of young people to a wider audience, using performing arts as a vehicle for change through a unique
partnership with Metro TeenAIDS and the DC Department of Parks and Recreation. The result: 65 youths from the DC area created an original musical about healthy relationships, AIDS awareness and sexuality called UNPROTECTED.

There will be multiple receptions following each show, as a celebration of all this summer’s cast has accomplished and a chance to talk to cast and board members about why they are involved with this incredible organization. Suggested donation at each reception is $20. You can, of course, attend free street theatre without attending an event. We hope you’ll grab a blanket, a group of friends and join us this week at any – or all – of the following events:

    DC needs City at Peace. In 2008, nearly 4,500 DC youths were arrested for criminal activity and 92% of deaths of residents aged 10-24 were caused by homicide. DC’s high-school graduation rate is less than 50%. City at Peace participants are less likely to be caught up in violent crime, are more likely to graduate high school and to attend college. They also consistently report choosing career paths that, but for the program, they would not have considered within reach.

    • This is a really terrific organization that achieves important results for DC. I’ve been a supporter for many years. I HIGHLY recommend contributing/volunteering etc. The event is sure to be fun, and is definitely for a worth cause. See you there!
