Dekalb County Interim CEO Lee May Proclaims January 30, 2016 Rimshot Day
Dekalb County Georgia Interim CEO Lee May proclaims January 30, 2916 Rimshot Day in support of a southeast regional tour featuring "Rimshot", a theatrical production that creates awareness for human trafficking, HIV, and domestic violence.
The production is best suited for audiences ages twelve and older. Proceeds benefit educational and prevention initiatives related to the epidemic--more specifically a southeast regional tour created by Roderick Cunningham, the founder of the Beverly Cunningham Outreach Program. The tour has garnished the support of clergy, educators, concerned citizens, lawmakers, and politicians.
Atlanta's Positive Arts Movement developed the stage production after an encounter with a human trafficking survivor. Since its inception, the production has traveled to various venues around the country, has been featured at several conventions, schools, and churches, and won several awards.
"Our production extends itself beyond the stage. We also host educational workshops to address other issues presented in the play to include peer pressure, statistics, images in media, positive self-image, and the grooming process associated with abusive relationships"
Dates in Clayton, Rockdale, Gwinnett and other counties in the Atlanta metro area are anticipated in the next several months and the producers are requesting community support.
