community-based education that uses theater as a tool for personal, cultural
and political transformation. Originally developed in Brazil by visionary actor
Augusto Boal, the work was (at first) designed to work with peasant and worker

power in fostering social and political activism, aiding in conflict
resolution, helping with community building and personal therapy, and even
challenging government legislation.

54] –Action Corps [email@example.com] needs you on Thurs.,
Aug. 18 at 8 PM ET on World Humanitarian Day. Join the National Call to Action
for #GlobalCrisisRelief and call on President Biden to be a humanitarian on
World Humanitarian Day.Today we face a crisis like never before. and we have
the power to help. COVID, climate
disruption, rising food and energy prices, and war have created a “megacrisis.”
At home we feel the pain of rising temperatures, gas and grocery prices. Low
income countries have it even worse with millions more people pushed into
hunger and poverty. With the stroke of a pen, President Biden can trigger a
simple, rapid, and cost-free solution: a new issuance of at least $650 billion
in Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) at the International Monetary Fund (IMF). This
little-known option gives immediate help to recover from shock and meet human
needs. No strings attached, no added debt burden, and zero costs to
taxpayers. Register at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIqce6vqDgjGtQPEZqFdH-FrjOKER63wZPir.
