In Remembering We Rise: 13th Artists Against Rape

 This dynamic event features local poets, artists and activists, speaking out against sexual assault and offers a unique supportive space for expression and community building. The event aims to help build an anti-violence movement that prioritizes survivors, people of color, people with disabilities, immigrants, low- income and incarcerated individuals, queer people, youth and others who have been marginalized or silenced. It is a night of healing and transformation through the arts.

This event promises to highlight a diverse mixture of seasoned and new performers and artists alike. Show your support of SFWAR and CCWP by attending the silent auction held before the event. All proceeds directly benefit SFWAR and CCWP mission of supporting survivors and their healing.

Please join us as we use art and celebration as tools for community resilience and personal healing. Doors open at 7pm, show begins at 8pm. Venue is wheelchair accessible and the show will be ASL translated. Please RSVP by Oct.29th for child care and/or shuttle from 19th Street Bart.
