Community Agreements:- W.A.I.T. (Why am I talking? Why am I not talking?)- Honor the intent but own the impact (well-intentioned comments can still cause harm)- Agree to disagree, but please do not disengage (we encourage leaning into healthy conflict)- Feel free to speak “in draft” (a little mess is good, let’s embrace our imperfections)- Throw glitter, not shade- The chat is part of the meeting (be mindful, agreements apply)

The Senate passed the bill on Sunday, Aug 7, through a process called Reconciliation, with all 50 Senate Democrats in support, no Republicans in support, and the tie-breaker by the Vice President. The House passed the bill on Friday, Aug 12, and the President is expected to sign it today.

Yes, Kirsten, and that NYT article is scary, especially when outdoor theatre seems like a real opportunity to make theatre safer and more accessible and more sustainable with COVID, climate change, and so much else.
