An evening for conscious activists, organizers, musicians, writers, poets, artists, thinkers who work for justice, peace, the future. The concept for “Active Hope” events is meeting outside our ‘silo’ issues - seeing common threads, connecting the dots, drawing from each other the inspiration and courage to act. We will again bring multi-issue activists and organizers together to hear, speak, network, collaborate, strategize. Groups will present briefly across the activist spectrum— environment, social justice, civil liberties, peace and anti-militarism, health care, education, jobs, immigration, and more-- all with an emphasis on action opportunities.
Sponsored by CodePink Women for Peace, Golden Gate Chapter
