Support a Mission for Inclusion

“Do you see me?” is a question that minorities, be it black, women, LGTBQ, or other citizens who find themselves categorized around the country ask every day. It’s a topic that is hot on the minds of everyone.

In light of recent events, the Kaleidoscope Dance Theatre has launched the “Mission for Inclusion”. The goal is to address the lack of diversity and economic inclusion many communities face, as well as to help everyone within earshot understand how they can contribute to the “Possibility of Yes”.
