About the TOWN HALL

As MR continues its work to become a more inclusive, accessible, and equitable space for all, this Town Hall invites our community to come together to reflect on the current and future needs of our movement community and how MR can be more engaged and responsive to them.

The MR Board of Directors is deeply committed to supporting organizational change and learning from our community of artists, as we deepen roots in our home in the 122 Community Center on First Avenue, and continue to weather the effects of the pandemic.

The Town Hall is a culmination of a Reflection process, which was initiated by the Board C.O.R.E. For the first stage of this process, MR engaged Rashida Abuwala, Principal at Community Impact Advisors to facilitate 12 small group conversations with over 80 members of our community.

Accessibility Services:

ASL interpretation, automated Closed Captioning, interactive Audio Description, and Access Doula will be provided for this event. For questions related to Accessibility please contact Christopher Unpezverde Núñez at [email protected].
