The Defamation Experience Comes to RIBA!

04/03/2018 - The Rhode Island Bar Association had the pleasure of hosting The Defamation Experience, a unique and interactive diversity program, on Tuesday, April 3, 2018. The play explores the highly charged issues of race, religion, gender, class, and the law with a twist: the audience is the jury. Through deliberations and post-show discussions, the audience engages in civil discourse that challenges preconceived notions. The Bar Association thanks the actors for a fantastic performance!
