Due to COVID-19, Cause Celebre is finding new and creative ways of moving forward with its projects.

ROSA’S REGISTRATION RIDE

In order to keep the momentum going for our latest project, “Rosa’s Registration Ride” which deals with voters’ rights and voter suppression (scroll down for more information about the is project) we will be hosting virtual conversations entitled “Your Vote. Your Voice.” These conversations will include a panel of people from different backgrounds who will discuss the many aspects of voters’ rights. Please email us at info@causeceleproductions.org if you are interested in joining us for this very important series of conversations. As the virus tries to weaken our physical well being and our emotional state we need to keep strengthening our individual voices!

Also, our sister company,

Food For Thought Productions, will be rescheduling the April 20th opening show. Don’t worry. We will reopen! We will keep you posted about the new schedule as we continue to receive more information about the Coronavirus. We have survived for 20 years and we will continue to survive!
