Whatever your personal stance happens to be the fact of the matter is that very many vulnerable groups in Boston and country are going to be made more vulnerable by the incoming presidential administration.
As such a group of local activists (and me) is organizing an event at the historic Strand Theater in Dorchester on Thurs 1/19. It’s called Together We Rise: a Counter-Inaugural Celebration of Resistance. The event is a multi-genre show (music, dance, spoken word poetry, comedy), an art gallery show, and an activism drive (16 local groups will have tables set up where you can learn about what they do, grab some literature, and sign up to either join or learn more).
It’s all about coming together in a positive way to do what we can to prepare for what will be a very rough 4 years (at least) for a lot of people. There’s a GoFundMe for the event to assist with venue/promo/security costs and a donation of $10 will also get you access to the event but in truth, given its community nature, absolutely no one will be turned away if unable to pay. Hope to see you there!
