The backstory: Mid-2019, there was plenty to be fed up about with our current Administration. Migrants and their children were/are targeted, who are still imprisoned. Then, LGBTQ rights were/are on the brink of being stripped (and still are on chopping block). Reproductive rights were/are threatened. Then the Jewish community is intimidated and harmed. What came out of the ugliness seen on the news every night was the urgency to do something — anything! Thus, a co-collaboration with writer Ruth Joffre began. It's a thrill to work alongside Ruth as we do our part for social justice and communities targeted by the 2020 election. And what a proper start to Wellness-ish-ness (kinda, sorta, most times), a blog about artistic wellness. Fight. On. Every Day.
Fight for Our Lives is a performance series advocating for communities targeted by divisive politics and systemic oppression (queer, trans, incarcerated, migrants, women, people of color).
By showcasing local artists, writers, and performers, our series also benefits mission-driven nonprofit organizations. Our goal is to connect nonprofit opportunities to audiences and artists across the Puget Sound area.
Fight for Our Lives is grassroots-led and time-limited until January 20, 2021—Inauguration Day.
