We open with an interview with Bay Area playwright and activist, Regina Evans. Ms. Evans speaks to us about her one woman show at DivaFest in San Francisco June 1, 8 p.m. and later in the year the full production is a part of the San Francisco Fringe Festival. 

Bio: Regina Y. Evans is a Poet, Playwright and Social Justice Performer. She volunteers as a Modern Day Abolitionist in the fight against Sex Trafficking.  Ms. Evans is a published Writer, and the Author of the poetry books Nonnie and The Butterfly, Unlatched Mosaic, and Nothing Cool About Ten. She is the writer of Echo: A Poetic Journey into Justice, a stage play bringing awareness to the issue of trafficking. Echo has played to sold out performances in Berkeley and San Francisco, Ca. The play caught the notice of President Barack Obama who confirmed his support of the effort through a personal White House phone call in 2011.
