Paint Night at Toivo

Right now, Common Ground members are having a great time as they socialize with one another and express themselves visually with our good friends from Advocacy Unlimited and Toivo. We hope some of these beautiful paintings will hang in the Common Ground Learning Center very soon!

Giving Back in South Jersey

Common Ground members and participants in our “Second Chance Project,” took time out of their trip to NYC and visited Garden State Tortoise to volunteer and help provide video production and much needed manual labor. The Second Chance Project gives participants a chance to build their resumes and confidence in caring for critically endangered turtles. Garden State Tortoise is the official assurance facility of theTurtleRoom, breeding dozens of endangered species in southern New Jersey.

Be a Light!

On January 19, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. in each time zone across the country, members of the theater community – from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters – will come together to launch The Ghostlight Project. Gathering outside of theaters on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating “light” for challenging times ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a “ghost light” on in a darkened theater, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone–regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability,  age, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
