In these unusual times, Things Unseen Theatre, more than ever, depends on the support of our patrons to continue to "use theatre as not only an entertainment vehicle, but also as a means to inform, educate our audiences, stimulate thought, support local artists, and inspire action in addressing issues."
The cast and crew have identified several additional non-profit organizations that deal with important issues that are covered in 45 Plays for 45 Presidents. If you are in a position to support them, it would be very much appreciated:
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Legal Defense Fund
The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. is America’s premier legal organization fighting for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. LDF also defends the gains and protections won over the past 80 years of civil rights struggle and works to improve the quality and diversity of judicial and executive appointments.
First Nations Development Institute
First Nations Development Institute improves economic conditions for Native Americans through direct financial grants, technical assistance & training, and advocacy & policy.
Fair Elections Center
Fair Elections Center is a national, nonpartisan voting rights and election reform 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington, D.C. Our mission is to use litigation and advocacy to remove barriers to registration and voting, particularly those disenfranchising underrepresented and marginalized communities, and to improve election administration.
Whether you have the means to donate or not, the biggest difference you can make is through voting. Register to vote, tell your friends to vote, and cast your ballot this fall.
