Activism in Santa Cruz County

The Artists on Art show for January 18th, 2017, featured spiritual activist and author, Ami Chen, community activist Miriam Stombler and Didje Koffa to talk about the protests happening in Santa Cruz County in response to the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States.

On inauguration night, the eve before the Women’s March, we are having a peaceful gathering to affirm our core values as friends, family, neighbors, and community. Come and hear inspirational speakers, light a candle (or bring a flashlight), and sing songs of solidarity.

This is a family and kid-friendly event. Bring an umbrella and dress warm! We stand together – rain or shine!

Our program begins at 5:30pm with Candlelighting, candles will be provided, but feel free to bring a flashlight (weather may not be conducive for candles!)

Our moderator is Lani Bandhauer who will welcome speakers: Santa Cruz County Supervisor John Leopold, Brenda Griffin of the NAACP and activist, educator, and author Bettina Aptheker. Music and Poetry will be provided by Djide Koffa and Simone Cox.

This event is sponsored by Women United California. #unitetoignite
