Counter-Demonstrate against White Supremacy!

Saturday March 25th - 9:45am - Saturday March 25th - 2:30pm

Counter-Demonstrate against White Supremacy!

Burnside Park AKA The People's Park
2 Kennedy Plaza
Providence, RI  02903 Map

This Saturday, March 25, 2017, Showing Up for Racial Justice RI (SURJ) along with other community groups will counter-demonstrate in response to the the Make America Great Again (MAGA) rally in Providence.

We plan to spread our message to public with big banners, signs, song, and chants directly countering the white supremacy of the Trump administration. Let’s remind them and the public that another world is possible by demonstrating love, solidarity and strength. Following SURJ’s values, we will use a strategy of non-violence and will avoid engagement in direct confrontation and escalation. For that reason many of us will keep a safe and sizable distance from Trump ralliers. We respect a diversity of tactics and will be acting in coordination with our community members all showing up together to counter-demonstrate.

We plan to gather near the fountain at Burnside Park in Kennedy Plaza at 9:45am for a morning circle at 10am, where we’ll give participants a chance to connect with each other, understand our strategy, and get some tools for safe and healthy participation. We’ll stay in Burnside Park as MAGA rally-ists gather at City Hall. The intention is to be visible to but not be interacting directly with MAGA rally-ists. After the MAGA rally has moved to the RI State House, we will march to our second location, on the lawn near the train station. Both of these locations (and our walk to the train station lawn) are planned to be far enough away (300- 400 feet at least) from the MAGA rally that we don’t expect face-to-face time with Trump supporters. But we do intend to be close enough for them and anyone else around to see our presence and messages. See maps in pinned post in the discussion section below for the location of our actions.

Disrupt the Trump Rally

NO PLATFORM FOR HATE IN OUR STATE

Stand up against the rise of the Right - against racism, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, Islamophobia, and austerity - here and around the globe!

When: March 25th at 11 AM
Where: RI State House

On March 25th Donald Trump supporters, many driving in from outside Rhode Island, will attempt to march freely through the streets of Providence and up to the statehouse in support of their president and his vicious anti-immigrant, anti-worker, Islamophobic, misogynistic, homophobic, racist, and transphobic policies.

Fuck that.

Providence knows better. Together we can show Trump and his supporters what WE stand for. We won’t tolerate this in our city.

Take a stand. Come together on 3/25.

Bring something to make noise. (Pots and pans etc.)
Organize with your friends and local organizations.

Occupy the State House green!

We encourage no one to instigate violence.

Opening Reception and Event

Sunday April 2nd - 2:00pm - Sunday April 2nd - 5:00pm

Opening Reception and Event

Van Vessem Gallery
63 Muse Way
Tiverton, RI  02878 Map

RESIST
is an exhibition of responses to the political climate of the United States. Let’s not say the “current” political climate or the “post-election” climate because what is happening now is merely a continuation of what has come before it. Americans (especially
those with comfortable lives) tend to suffer from nasty cases of historical amnesia. Is the rise of Donald Trump frightening because it’s truly unexpected, or because we couldn’t see through the glossy surfaces of our socioeconomic bubbles?

We invited artists to show work that deals with the viscerality of politics. Work that eschews pithy or sophomoric commentary for subtlety and depth. Work that acknowledges history and its inextricable relation to the present. Work that recognizes
emotion as a valid genesis for politics.

We wanted work that seeks and advocates for political solutions heartier and more potent than the ever-nebulous entity of “love.” Work with bark and bite. Work that celebrates
bodies on the periphery, bodies in danger, bodies that might be deemed insufficiently human in a culture saturated with rightism.

We wanted work that questions art as a politically useful mode of production. Work that encourages the viewer to go beyond aesthetics and toward activism. Work that questions
itself, work that implicates the viewer, work that unsettles the pristine space of art and brings us into the violence and fear of material reality.

The following artists responded to our request, and have committed their work to this exhibit: (in no paticular order)

Nissen, Jessica
Kura, Nermin
Culora, Tom
Robillard, Michael
Claverie, Beth
Barnes, David
Deininger, Tom

DONATIONS
If the punditry’s utter failure to predict or understand the mainstream acceptance of Trump is any indication, talk is exceedingly cheap.
In the interest of putting our money where our mouth is, so to speak, we asked that all participating artists donate a portion of any work sold to the ACLU, Palnned Parenthood, or any other organization of their choice. The gallery will also donate half of their profits to the ACLU.

In conjuction with the gallery opening, there will be an opportunity for people to mingle, listen to poetry, music, meditate etc. . This event is in finalizing stages and we will post more information once we have settled on performers and other details. This event will happen in the Sandywoods Center for the Arts, next door to the gallery.

Providence, RI  02903 Map

Please join Social Enterprise Greenhouse on April 20, 2017 for Providence Green Drinks with Energize RI Coalition!

Each month we will highlight the work of organizations innovating in the environment sector, followed by discussion and networking over food and drink. This is a great opportunity to find out how you can get involved in a thriving community committed to creating jobs and making our RI communities more environmentally friendly!

The EnergizeRI Coalition is a broad group of Rhode Islanders working to pass a carbon pricing bill in the Rhode Island General Assembly. The EnergizeRI Act is a bill that creates a Clean Energy and Jobs Fund, paid for by a fee on fossil fuel polluters. Carbon pricing is a market-based solution to carbon pollution that will lower emissions while energizing the economy. At Green Drinks, we will be outlining the evolution of our coalition, summarizing our partnerships throughout the state, highlighting our progress in the Rhode Island legislature thus far, and sharing our vision for a clean energy future.
