Dear Principal,

We have a Partnership agreement with TDSB to bring your students to the inspiring and celebratory, Social Justice, play "Colours of Justice" which teaches children and youth to care about others, to want to change the world for the better and to want to have freedom in its true sense for every individual in the world!

"I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free ... so other people would also be free."
- Rosa Parks

The play, Colours of Justice, examines the justice system and asks,
"Is It Just?" If it is unjust, how can we work together to make it better? During this explorative and educational process, the inspiring play "Colours of Justice" teaches children and youth to discuss, research and create a justice system that would actually work and achieve equality in our society.

SYNOPSIS: This inspiring play is about a modern day Harriet Tubman who goes undercover into the criminal justice system. She helps change the laws, liberating many children, youth and adults from prison, giving them hope and a license to a new life. "You Can't Break My Spirit: The Colours of Justice" is a short novel adapted into a Play by Equal Justice Canada staff and Donna Michelle Bernard. "You Can't Break My Spirit" is about creating Love, Understanding and Victory in the midst of challenges. A young brown woman goes undercover into the Toronto Justice system so she can understand the experience of the people she serves in her missionary work. She expects to be released from jail after one night, but instead is trapped in a system that will only release you if you plead guilty, or have tens of thousands of dollars to pay lawyers who are experts who are well connected and are experts in their field.

The faces around her are vulnerable and aggressive souls who have given up on any possibility of having a normal life, people who have lost everything; they are casually sacrificing their souls for momentary freedom, while being trapped in a cycle that seeks to destroy them. The protagonist encounters dishonesty, systemic and overt racism, politics, and injustices within the legal system, finally uncovering a system that does not work efficiently at every level. As she searches for solutions she finds the true meaning of love, courage and dignity. The protagonist's bravery, determination and persistent faith at every step of the journey is, in the end, rewarded after spending two hundred thousand dollars and fighting for the freedom to live her life on her own terms.

This exciting play, "You Can't Break My Spirit: Colours of Justice," has been vetted and admired by school boards across Canada.
