ACTION Northwest announces 3rd Words of Resistance fundraiser
ACTION Northwest announces 3rd Words of Resistance fundraiser
Theme of anti-violence and anti-oppression announced

ACTION Northwest is proud to announce that we are continuing our poetry night fundraisers with Words of Resistance 3 on October 21st. This event will be held at the Wayward Café in the University District from 8pm to 9:30pm.

In the past our poetry nights have surrounded themes such as anti-war and peace, the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and anti-discrimination against all people. This event will be no exception. The pieces shared during Words of Resistance 3 will surround the theme of anti-violence and anti-oppression as October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. While domestic violence is a major problem in both the straight and LGBT communities, we do not want to limit our performers to one theme. We have expanded upon this theme and are inviting participants to share work that surrounds the violence committed against all communities including people of color, women, children, the LGBT community, immigrants and any other minorities who are the victims of violence and/or oppression and the anti-violence movement.

In addition to expanding upon our theme, we are also expanding our event as well. In the past we have included work by some amazing spoken word artists. This time we want to include not only poets, but also musicians and performance artists as well. If you are interested in participating, please contact us by either calling our office at (206) 774-0263, by e-mailing us at info@actionnw.net or by contacting us via our myspace at www.myspace.com/actionnw. Also please visit the Wayward Café on myspace at www.myspace.com/waywardcafe and call them at (206) 524-0204 to learn more about this and other events at this great volunteer run and collectively owned vegan café.

ACTION Northwest seeks to connect, support and advance the growth and effectiveness of multi-issue organizations and grassroots socio/economic justice groups. To learn more about us and what we do please visit www.actionnw.net or our myspace page at www.myspace.com/actionnw.
