Uniform Justice is a new original play created from a collaboration between TE'A at Intersections International, the Retaliatory Violence Insight Project (RVIP) at George Mason University, the Memphis Mayor's Innovation Team's "Gun Down" initiative, and the Hattiloo Theatre Company.

This is probably the 20th plane I have taken in my life, so I go through my journey's routine quite naturally, as I would go through my daily routine if I were at home.
