Racial Justice Enactors

The Racial Justice Enactors is made up of performing arts professionals and educational developers and is housed within Georgetown’s Racial Justice Institute.

The Racial Justice Enactors create arts-based educational interventions. This work spans from university settings for audiences of instructors and administrators to community hubs, sparking conversation and spreading knowledge.

The Racial Justice Enactors work as racial justice “first responders,” developing works that dramatize and dissect health and legal scenarios and address the harmful racial inequities in these contexts. Pairing short applied theatre performances in a range of genres with facilitated discussions, our programs work to highlight the experience of marginalized individuals, shed light on current and historical racial inequities, and enhance participants’ abilities to advance equity through their professional practices.
