The cast and creative time of
Sisters in the System at San Diego Mesa College
Playwrights Project partnered with San Diego Mesa College and FAST Scholars to host Sisters in the System as part of Foster Youth Awareness Week! It was especially special as one of the storytellers who inspired Sisters in the System flew to San Diego for the staged reading!
Later that day, the production traveled to Palomar College for another performance! In collaboration with the Palomar College Women's Studies program, Playwrights Project was able to reach even more students.
We are so proud to be celebrating strong women and advocating for improvements to the foster care system!
