Chriss, a reporter for United Press International out of Atlanta.

Rosa's Registration Ride

UPDATE:

On Firday, September 27th Cause Célèbre

partnered with Democracy Prep Public Schools

to present ROSA'S REGISTRATION RIDE

along with a performance of

When the Truth is Not Enough

to over 200 high school students.

The response was extraordinary.

After a deeply compelling Q & A

with the cast and writer,

the students went into the field

where several hundred people

 registered to vote

and 400 pledged to register to vote.

The results from one presentation were incredible!
