Our Values

The Laramie Project Project was born out of the understanding that theatre can change the world. By using performance to raise awareness for victims of hate crimes, the project aims to foster a generation of compassionate theatre advocates.

Theatre

The Laramie Project Project partners with established productions of The Laramie Project, and invites groups to get involved by mounting a production or reading of their own to honor victims of hate crimes.

Advocacy

The Laramie Project Project publicly supports victims of hate crimes, and stands with them by uniting with productions of The Laramie Project across the world.

Compassion

The Laramie Project Project aims to contribute to a social and theatrical environment that is inclusive, aware, and empathetic.

Our Story

The Laramie Project Project got its start within the walls of Gloucester County Institute of Technology in Sewell, New Jersey in the summer of 2016. Mourning the 49 lives lost in the Pulse nightclub shooting that occurred that June, and getting ready for the drama department’s upcoming production of The Laramie Project, drama student Alyssa Sileo and program head Kirstin Lynch-Walsh decided that they wanted to unite 49 productions of the play to honor the 49 victims of the tragic hate crime. Since then, the project has evolved to include several phases, with thousands of people from across the world creating a difference in their community.
