The Broadway Advocacy Coalition, the newly formed organization that has partnered with Columbia Law School to present a monthly series entitled The Invitation, promoting political and social change, has announced participants for its November 6 event.

As previously reported, Adrienne Warren, Amber Iman, Cameron J. Ross, Britton Smith, Christian Dante White, and Jacquelyn Bell are leading the charge with Broadway Advocacy Coalition following their August 1 Broadway for Black Lives Matter Event.

The first meeting of The Invitation, focusing on political participation and held at the Altschul Auditorium—School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, will feature appearances by Jeanine Tesori, Karine Plantidit, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Denée Benton, L. Steven Taylor, and Alexandria Bradley.

The event will also include discussions led by educators and policy reformists, including Frank Roberts (the Black Lives Matter professor featured in the August 1 Broadway for Black Lives Matter event), Farrah Tanis, Rebecca Rad, Vivian Nixon, and Ronald Hampton.

The event will be livestreamed here.

“We want to engage, empower, encourage, enlighten our community as a whole,” Iman previously told Playbill.com. “Black, white, purple, LGBTQ, children—everyone needs to be involved in what’s going on and what’s happening in our world.”

Tickets are still available. Readers can learn more information by following their social channels on Facebook and Twitter.
