Solidarity Show vol. 2: A Night of Politics, Poetry, & Music

  • Kafe Kerouac 2250 North High Street Columbus, OH, 43201 United States (map)

Join ISO Columbus for vol. 2 of our solidarity shows. Combining music, poetry, and politics, we will explore what it means to live in solidarity with all oppressed people. 

This is also a fundraiser for ISO - Columbus’s trip to the Socialism 2017 conference in Chicago next month. We're bringing over 50 students and workers from across Central Ohio to attend, and we need your support in helping ensure it is accessible for everyone. 

A suggested $5 or $10 cover will be split between ISO and all of the performers.

During the political open mic, someone will speak about the #BlackPride4and we will be passing around a donation jar for their legal proceedings. 

Poets:

Ingrid Raphael-
Immigrant, photographer and organizer with the ISO. Ingrid and fellow generational immigrant, Jessica Rodriguez, curated The Grid Zine which explores the untold immigrant narrative. Ingrid will perform poems from the zine, available for donations at the event, along with new work.
