Background: On Thursday, January 19, 2017, a collective of artists and writers will be presenting "Together We Rise: a Counter-Inaugural Celebration of Resistance" at Boston's historic Strand Theatre in Dorchester from 7:30 to 11:30 PM. We invite one and all to join us in this celebration that utilizes creative expression as a tool to support positive change!
"Together We Rise" is composed of artists, activists, and community members collaborating together to catalyze creative and participatory actions to build a more just and resilient community in Boston. We stand in solidarity with people from across the United States who are also working to build a more peaceful, inclusive, and creative world.
"Together We Rise" is committed to using nonviolent resistance to oppression in all its forms. We believe in the power of creative expression to build understanding and unity. We support freedom of speech, recognizing that the views expressed by individual participants associated with "Together We Rise" may not reflect the views of everyone gathered. We encourage each participant to consider the inherent power of words and images and to use our creative expression as a tool to support positive change.
