TUHSD, University of Phoenix sponsor "The Defamation Experience"

The Defamation Experience

Tempe Union High School District has partnered with the University of Phoenix to host an interactive courtroom drama, known as "The Defamation Experience".

The Defamation Experience is a unique diversity program comprised of three components: the play, the deliberation and the discussion. The play follows a civil suit, exploring highly charged issues of race, class, religion, gender and the law.

There's also a twist: the audience is the jury. Following the play, the audience will deliberate and decide the fate of the trial. A post-show discussion will follow.

The event will take place in the Audiortium at McClintock High School in Tempe, Ariz. Attendees will park in the student parking lot, just east of the auditorium.

Admission is free, but tickets are recommended. Visit www.eventbrite.com/e/defamation-experience-tickets to register online.

The event is sponsored by TUHSD's Diversity, Inclusion & Equity Initiative.

For additional event information, contact Dr. Cliff Moon at CMoon@tempeunion.org.
