The Gold Room
Colorado Springs, CO
Compartir este evento


Have you ever wished those who make decisions that impact community members who experienced incarceration would stand in our shoes and see the world, for a moment, through our eyes?

In this special Motus Theater performance, Colorado judicial, Department of Corrections, and legislative leaders stand on stage with a Motus JustUs monologist and co-read their stories.

Hear 12th Judicial District Court Judge the Honorable Martín A. Gonzales; Deputy Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Corrections Ruth Coffman; Colorado Legislators Representative Leslie Herod and Senator Pete Lee; and Director of College Career Readiness and Career & Technical Education at Harrison School District No. 2 Woody Longmire co-read the personal stories of Astro Allison, Brandon Wainright, Daniel Guillory, Dereck Bell, and Juaquin Mobley about the impact of the carceral system on their lives. The monologues explore themes such as racial bias in sentencing, human rights abuses in prisons, criminalizing substance abusers, employment obstacles facing people with former felonies, and the systemic racism and poverty that pushes people into illicit economies.

Each story will be followed by a special musical response from the seamless, soulful sounds and roots music of The ReMINDers.

This performance will be presented in person at The Gold Room in downtown Colorado Springs with the goal of mobilizing discussion and inspiring action toward true justice. A perfect event for thoughtful dialogue and reflection on the ongoing civil rights and racial justice challenges of the criminal legal system.

The JustUs project was developed by Motus Theater in 2019 and premiered as a keynote at the National Association of Community and Restorative Justice Conference in front of 1,600 stakeholders. Since then, JustUs monologues have served as keynotes for 8 national and international conferences. In 2021 Motus presented JustUs monologues in front of 55 DAs at the  Fair & Just Prosecution Conference. Executive Director Miriam Krinsky had this to say: Motus JustUs presentation truly surpassed even our incredibly high expectations. Motus performances will make a difference in decisions made by DAs across the country and, as such, in the willingness to rethink punitive approaches that simply waste more lives.

Rep. Leslie Herod credited JustUs monologues with inspiring 2 pieces of criminal legal reform legislation: Colorado HB21-1314 which eliminates the ability for courts to revoke one's driver's license for small, non-driving-related infractions, and HB21-1315 which eliminates fines and fees within Juvenile court.

Sponsored by the Colorado Coalition for Restorative Justice Practices, Colorado RJ Council & Community Works.
