Kickoff party for Beyond Patience & Fortitude: A Series in Political Action and Advocacy
January 20 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| 10/8
Join us on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, to kick off “Beyond Patience & Fortitude,” an event series designed to educate and empower New Yorkers in the current political climate. From January to March, we’ll host presentations and performances that inform and inspire us to civic action. It’s time to move beyond patience!
Our January 20th kickoff will include stations with sign-making materials and button-making stations where you can create your very own “Civic New Yorker” pin! Free posters, stickers, and informational “Know Your Rights” flyers provided by Interference Archive and the ACLU. We’ll also give out free copies of RESIST!, a comics newspaper commenting on a Trump presidency, published by Gabe Fowler of Desert Island Comics.
The evening will feature a performance of Aaron Copland’s “Lincoln Portrait” by Loud Box and a screening of William Santen’s nostalgic, wistful treatment of Barack Obama’s 2008 inauguration.
