Pro Publica Illinois and Free Street Theater to Get People Talking Around the State

ProPublica Illinois is joining with Free Street Theater to listen to people around the state and and "to think creatively about how to bridge divides and earn trust among the state's diverse, geographically disparate communities." ProPublica, a newsroom of investigative journalists, began operations in Illinois last October; Free Street Theater, a 49-year-old organizarion, uses live exercises and activities to get people from different backgrounds to start talking. They're looking for your input on where to go and who to work with to get the project going. (ProPublica)
