We feel strongly that it is a crucial time to stand as a community united for peace and justice, committed to welcoming and protecting people of all colors, genders, religions and sexual orientations. We are also strongly committed to protecting the earth for our children and their children’s children. More action plans are underway. We are proud of our work as a community so far.
Join us June 4th for our next Activist Art Pop-Up Shop and Cocktail Party at Hootenanny!
We had such a great time raising $1400 bucks back in March for our first Activist Pop-up Shop so let's DO THIS again! Y'all know- we've got a great community of artists and we're fighting the good fight. Friends and neighbors- Meg of Love and Victory, Hootenanny Pete, The Good Riot and many more will be selling their t's, postcards, linocuts, cocktail glasses and more. Profits to ACLU and Planned Parenthood, of course. Reach out if you want to be a part of it. Otherwise...Come support! Kids welcome!
On January 14th we joined together for The Small but MIGHTY Hootenanny, a visionary songfest to celebrate Peace, Justice and Love. The Bell House donated their space and Pete Sinjin and his incredible band of Riley McMahon, Steve Curtis, Mike Davis, Susie Greenebaum and Matt Feik donated their time. Hannah led art for the kids and Kira led the Small but Mighty Hootenanny Dancers in their dance to "All You Fascists Are Bound To Lose!" Fletcher's BBQ, Colson Bakery, and 4&20 Blackbirds donated food. Photographer Whitney Kidder donated her time and took amazing pictures! Over $5000 was raised for the ACLU, the IRC and 350.org.
November 28th through December 2nd we held our Week of Action at Hootenanny. We hosted a range of activities and donated all the money to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Standing Rock and the Southern Poverty Law Center. $3500 was raised and donated to ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Standing Rock, 350.org, and the Southern Poverty Law center. We also hoped to provide a continued place to support and inspire each other with music, art, and dance! All Hootenanny teachers and parents volunteered their time! We extend our deep gratitude to Steve Curtis, Nikolai Moderbacher, Hannah Levinson, Sarah Jackson, Anath Benais, Jackie Wolff, Rana Rines, Spencer, Kerville Cosmos Jack, Norlan Jackson, Stephen Taylor and Whitney Kidder!
On Sunday November 13th, just days after the election we instinctively gathered together to sing. We collected money and raised $1400 for the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Black Lives Matter, and Standing Rock. We supported each other and joined together in a spirit of hope and activism.
