We acknowledge that our department and the CSUEB campus is on the ancestral land
of the Yrgin Chochenyo Ohlone People. We pay respects to the Ohlone people, past,
present, and future.
We invite you to reflect on the history of the lands and waterways we are all privileged to gather on. We also invite you to reflect on the legacies of colonization embedded within the technologies we use—how some pieces of technology are not available in many poor, marginalized and Indigenous communities, and how many of our technologies leave a carbon footprint that disproportionally affect poor, marginalized, and Indigenous communities. We invite everyone to take some time to consider our roles in reconciliation, decolonization and allyship.

The true story of Daniel Hernandez Jr., who becomes an unwitting hero after saving the life of Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords in a mass shooting in 2011. This play looks at the way our society treats race, sexuality, mental health and disability, as well as challenging our ideas of gun control when these issues feel more relevant than ever.
