    ArticleChristmas Trees and Menorahs

    My younger son, Elijah, was baptized last Saturday, on his second birthday. If you are familiar with Catholic guilt, you might imagine relatives wondering, what took so long? Catholic children are often baptized within the first few months of life, and I waited two years. I had always intended to do it, but it was my wife, who is Jewish,... more...

    ArticleUniform Justice - What Does Our Youth Think?

    At the end of the performance, a familiar-looking boy tapped my shoulder as I was packing props into a suitcase. I would guess he was about nine years old. “This one was even better than the one at PCCC,” he said to me. I was trying so hard to remember where I knew him from that his statement didn’t register at first.... more...

    ArticleA Meeting to Spark Hope, Insight, and Action

    Twenty-six of us sat in a circle at the back of the Amistad Chapel in the United Church of Christ’s national offices in Cleveland. Our group consisted of current and retired police officers, clergy, arts administrators, and community activists. Many were eager to speak, but some were there just to listen, to get a better sense of... more...

    ArticleThe Uniform Justice Experience, From the Tour to...

    Can theatre uncover the surface of police-community conflict? Absolutely. Because writing a play is something like opting to write a letter instead of engaging in an emotionally charged argument with someone you’re in conflict with. The kind of argument where you worry that the words won’t come out right, if at all. If only... more...

    ArticleWhat is Uniform Justice Really About, Anyway? ...

    Have you seen the current poster for Uniform Justice? Or Visited the Uniform Justice Spring Tour page on the Intersections website? Or seen or heard any other press material?
