Biases and stereotypes can affect policing and how law enforcement agencies carry out their duties. But officers and other members of law enforcement are not the only ones who have bias/stereotypes. What role do the biases and stereotypes we hold about law enforcement play in the interactions between citizens and officers? This town hall will help us confront stereotypes and biases that undermine interactions between law enforcement and citizens.

Theater: “Perfect Arrangement”

Virtual Performance

The Lively Arts

Washington DC, 1950. State Department employees Bob and Nora find themselves at the forefront of the moment when the Red Scare adds shades of Lavender. In other words, along with rooting out potential Communists, the couple must now investigate “deviants,” i.e., gays.

Unfortunately for Bob and Nora, they are also gay, and their marriage is a cover for their actual partners, who also pretend to be a married couple. Hilarious screwball misdirection eventually gives way to a sober examination of gay rights and American values.

Purchase Viewing Codes

  • Family and Groups: $20
  • Individuals: $10
  • IUP Student: $7.50
