Who We Are
Music has always been a vital component of social change. In the 50’s and 60’s singing played a large part in the social justice movement. The mission of our group is to bring songs back to our current rallies, marches and other events in support of peace, environmental, political, racial and social justice issues. Our goal is to resurrect Jon Fromer's Freedom Song Network which for a quarter of a century raised their voices for justice and freedom. We sing songs that people can sing along with us.
HOW WE WILL ACCOMPLISH OUR GOALS
Members of our group will attend San Francisco Bay Area events that promote a healthy, safe, equitable world to sing songs suitable for all attending to join in. We are all volunteers and there will be no charge for our appearance at the events.
We hold monthly meetings in Marin County, California to learn, share and practice songs. We welcome anyone who wants to simply sing, can play a musical instrument or help with coordination. Please contact us (see contact info below) to be added to our list of members or if you want us to perform at one of your organization's events.
OUR NEXT EVENTS.
December (probably a day between December 16 - 20.) Impeachment Rally at the San Rafael City Plaza, San Rafael City Plaza, 1000 4th St. Join us as we sing at the rally.
Friday, December 13, 5:30-7 pm, Gun Violence Rally at Novato City Hall, 901 Sherman at DeLong. This PeaceNovato-sponsored vigil is planned as part of a nationwide observance marking the Sandy Hook School shootings seven years ago (December 14, 2012). Eighty-nine organizations in over thirty states, and counting, will hold events throughout December. Part remembrance, part re-dedication to gun safety, these observances show us both that progress has been made — and that it’s not enough. Bring signs and candles, your neighbors and kids. PeaceNovato Steering Committee Info: 415.883-8324.
Friday, December 27, 4 - 5pm at Redwoods Retirement Community, 40 Camino Alto. Join us as we sing with the Seniors for Peace at the corner of Camino Alto and Miller.
