How can music build community across lines of race, class, culture, and age? How can music facilitate movements for economic and racial justice? By exploring the longstanding collaboration between punk activist collective Positive Force DC and inner city senior outreach network We Are Family, this session will tease out lessons that are broadly applicable in many contexts. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how relationships are key to radical change, and walk away armed with tools to nurture transformative community.
