    The American Circus Alliance led an info session at the VivaFest in Las Vegas last week.  VivaFest attendees joined board members Chris Lashua (Cirque Mechanics), Aloysia Gavre (Troupe Vertigo), Serenity Smith Forchion (Nimble Arts), Abigail Munn (Circus Bella) and Shenea Stiletto to learn about the organization and the work it  has been doing.  Additionally a senior representative from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) attended to share resources that the ACA and EEOC have begun collaborating on to support circus workers rights.

    CircusTalk and the American Circus Alliance are collaborating on a project that would make mentoring more accessible in our community, both to mentors and mentees. As we give shape to the program, we'd like to hear from you. Please share your thoughts on mentorship by filling out this preliminary survey.

    Then join us for our monthly members meeting on Sept. 8 at 1pm Eastern (virtually).  We will be hosting this meeting along with Stacy Clark of CircusTalk, focused around a future collaborative mentorship project between the ACA and CircusTalk.
