“Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Motus Theater presents the Boulder County premiere of JustUs: Stories From the Frontlines of the Criminal Justice System Family-Friendly Performance in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The autobiographical stories were created in a 16-week collaborative process between Motus Theater’s Artistic Director, Kirsten Wilson, and Cierra Block, Brian Lynch, Joaquin Mobley, Brandon Wainright. These stories present impactful depictions of the consequences of incarceration, and the injustice within the criminal justice system (both behind bars and beyond) with the goal of inspiring, informing, and engaging audiences in the need to restore justice to the criminal justice system itself.

Panel discussion with Motus’ JustUs Monologists, Boulder County DA Michael Dougherty, and Colorado State House Representative Leslie Herod – Chair of the Colorado Prison Population Management Community.

JustUs premiered at the 2019 National Association of Community and Restorative Justice Conference in Denver, in front of 1,600 people.
