Members of the Resistance Revival Chorus opened our Audience Takes the Stage Event.

The Resistance Revival Chorus is a collective of more than 60 self-identified women who come together to sing protest songs in the spirit of collective joy + resistance. They honor the long tradition of music and protest songs in civil rights movements by uplifting historical songs as well as creating new ones for our current moment. They are calling for a resistance revival of our spirits, of our commitment to the movement, of our joy and of our power.
