Being the Resistance: Sharing Songs, Stories, & Strategies

This course was offered in Winter/Spring, 2018.

Songs have animated and sustained struggles for justice, rights, and dignity throughout history.

This event will include performance and participatory singing in several languages with updates from the resistance front by diverse Bay Area activist groups.

Presented by the Workmen’s Circle/Arbeter Ring of Northern California, founded over a century ago, which seeks to connect activists currently working “for a better and more beautiful world for all” (“far ashenere un besere velt far ale”).
