Earth2Trump: Roadshow of Resistance (Portland)

April 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

The #Earth2Trump: Roadshow of Resistance is coming through Portland, Maine and bringing with it some musical medicine and a call to action! These shows will be an act of resistance within themselves – providing ways to get inspired, plug in to your local community’s issues, and even take action during the event. There are a million ways to resist, so make sure to join us and help spread the word! The event is free, family friendly, and open to the public.

Our local sponsors are Maine People’s Alliance, Sierra Club Maine, USM Queer Straight Alliance, 350 Maine, Endangered Species Coalition, World Ocean Observatory, and WorthWild. Please give them a big shout out and let’s pack the house!

A special emphasis will be put on #NoDAPL, #protectthesacred, and indigenous solidarity. Learn more about Sacred Stone camp, civil disobedience, the importance of building bridges, and standing up for the land and water. You don’t want to miss our line-up here in Portland.
