impassioned activists and you!

Focused on social, environmental and economic justice,
the series aims to foster a space where we can speak truth to power,
celebrating our solidarity and having fun at the same time
while offering a voice to the voiceless.
We are definitely looking to get you all riled up!
The evening will include a soap box open mic to get you up there,
group activities to get you involved
and a flyer table to keep you informed,
spreading the word, being heard!
This is your forum! All power to the people!
If you feel so inclined, bring your favourite radical poem to share with us!
Obviously, hate speeches of any kind will not be tolerated.
