Season 34

Partnerships for Action

In line with our mission to bring you theatre that inspires debate, Stage Left goes one step further with Partnerships for Action. Each production is paired with a relevant not-for-profit organization to cross-promote and raise awareness for both Stage Left and the organization in question. Partnering organizations will display their materials at the theatre and receive discounted tickets for members. Through these partnerships, audiences will have a means to act on the issues raised by each production–not only to be informed, but to become engaged.

For this production of Mutt, Stage Left is proud to partner with the The Coalition for a Better Chinese American Community and Asian Americans Advancing Justice—Chicago.

CBCAClogoThe Coalition for a Better Chinese American Community is an nonpartisan advocacy organization aiming to unite resources from its member organizations to empower Chinese Americans in Greater Chicago. CBCAC does a variety of work, including civic education, issue advocacy, communication with policy makers, and community mobilization. One of the current projects is the Chinatown Community Vision Plan, a document that provides a framework for long-term decision-making for the Greater Chinatown area. To join the cause, visit

AAAJ logoAsian Americans Advancing Justice—Chicago, a member of Advancing Justice, has a mission to empower the Asian American community through advocacy, by utilizing education, research, and coalition-building. Advancing Justice-Chicago was established in 1992 by a group of visionary Chicago community activists, academicians, and business leaders in response to the growing need to build a pan-Asian policy agenda among Chicago’s diverse Asian American communities. Advancing Justice-Chicago projects a united voice on the most pressing issues of concern to Asian Americans in metropolitan Chicago. Its staff and board work closely with a broad network of established community leaders and emerging activists who have bridged ethnic and cultural differences to find solutions to shared concerns. Specifically, Advancing Justice-Chicago works to empower the Asian American community by: increasing public understanding about Asian American communities; advocating for policies that promote social, economic, educational and political equity of the community as a whole; encouraging active civic participation through education and advocating for equal rights, and working in partnership with and supporting like-minded organizations and individuals to build positive interracial and inter-ethnic relations.
