Allied Arts: A Social Justice Social
Some friends of mine started a group called Allied Arts, the goal was to make a group that supports social justice by raising money and awareness through their artistic mediums. For their first event they are doing a fundraiser for Social Justice Fund Northwest, a member-funded foundation that raises money for grassroots organizations working on social justice issues in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. They asked me to read something as part of their line up. Here's the details:
Lineup (besides me): Roy Antonio Arauz, Tony Ramirez, Clay River and the Sacred Poets, and Avery Gilbert (ADOS 33).
Visual art for sale by: Darcy DuBose, Abrahm Guthrie, Samantha Grace Lamont, Jenna Lechner, Megan Maxwell, Brian Park, Nicole Schultz, Susan Russell, Cait Spera, Rambling Hands, Amelia Bjesse, and Sophie Wood.
Also there will be pizza. And tamales.
