Women Who Rock: Making Scenes, Building Communities, an ofrenda to a world without violence
The Women Who Rock: Making Scenes, Building Community Collective seeks on honor those who use music to bring joy and healing to all, especially to people and families who have been subject to intimate partner violence, sexual violence, street violence, anti-trans violence, queer violence and state violence. We also seek to honor those women who have been prevented from singing, playing music, and dancing even when their hearts desired to. And last we honor the survivors who continue to struggle for equality by using their music to imagine and share visions of our world where all people have access to housing, health care, education, and clean water and food. We stand with the Water Protectors of Standing Rock, who are fighting to protect all living creatures on our planet for now and the future.
The Women Who Rock: La Colectiva de Haciendo Escenas, Construyendo Communidad busca honrar a aquellos que usan la música para traer alegría y sanidad a todos, especialmente a las personas y familias que han sido víctimas de violencia de pareja, anti-trans, anti-queer violencia, violencia callejera y violencia estatal. También buscamos honrar a aquellas mujeres que han sido impedidas de cantar, de tocar la música, y de bailar especialmente cuando sus corazones deseaban. Y por último honramos a los supervivientes que continúan la lucha por la igualdad usando su música para imaginar y compartir visiones donde todas personas tienen acceso de vivienda, recursos de salud, educación, agua potable y comida saludable. Apoyamos con los Protectores de Agua de Standing Rock, que están luchando para proteger a todas las criaturas en nuestro planeta por ahora y por el futuro.
