A BETTER WAY TO SPEND YOUR TIME ON JANUARY 20th
Gird yourself for the coming struggle to preserve basic human rights and equal justice. The Kate Schulte Foundation presents Warriors for Justice in an inauguration day benefit for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the ACLU.
This event is not about the election or who is president. It is about the promised assault on women’s rights, immigrants, education, labor, the environment, and so on. It will take courage and conviction to resist these assaults on our civil liberties, our country, and our world.
Many of Columbus’s finest performing artists will help support the SPLC’s and ACLU’s efforts fighting anticipated assaults on equal rights by the federal government. Featuring The Jazz Poetry Ensemble, Mark Lomax II, Donna Mogavero, Warriors for Justice a Capella (Debra James Tucker, Vicki Saunders, Tia Harris), Miller-Kelton Redux, Paisha Thomas, the Columbus Liberation Music Orchestra, and more.
