Wake Up! with United Way: Evicted! Poverty, Policy, and the Law

07:45 am to 09:00 am
The Mill, 642 N Madison St, Ind.
https://www.monroeunitedway.org/WakeUp

Join United Way and IU Political and Civic Engagement for a monthly breakfast speaker series to explore issues which impact our community, friends, and neighbors.

On Thursday, May 9th, the topic, “Evicted! Poverty, Policy, and the Law,” will be examined by Marcy Wenzler from the Housing Law Center at Indiana Legal Services, Sarah Boomsma from the Bloomington Housing Authority, and a community member who has navigated the legal process as a tenant.

Attendees will have the opportunity to deepen their awareness about someone else’s reality while learning about the challenges, innovations, collaborations, resources available through area nonprofits, and how to get more involved in making a difference.

The $10 ticket cost includes breakfast and coffee catered by One World, with any remaining proceeds supporting United Way of Monroe County’s efforts to address the community’s critical needs today, while reducing those needs tomorrow.

Cherry Docs

07:30 pm to 09:30 pm
Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay
https://www.jewishtheatrebloomington.com/

The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington’s 2019 season opens with Cherry Docs written by Canadian playwright David Gow. Directed by Liam Castellan, this drama follows a neo-Nazi Skinhead, played by Christopher Crider-Plonka, who is charged with murder in Toronto. Legal Aid assigns him a Jewish lawyer, played by JTB veteran Jonathan Golembiecki, and they are forced to collaborate on a defense. The Skinhead is pushed beyond his prejudice, while the lawyer is forced to examine the limits of his own liberal tolerance, and the demons that might be underneath it. Cherry Docs is a white-hot examination of hate and how hard it is to uproot from society.

Performances are May 9, 11, 15, 16, & 18 at 7:30 pm & May 19 at 3:00pm at the Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased through the BCT Box Office at 114 E. Kirkwood Avenue (812-323-3020) and can be purchased online through bctboxoffice.org. There will be talkbacks directly following the performance on Thursday, May 9 and Thursday, May 16.
