PVC Solidarity Statement

The Peoples' Voice Cafe, started in 1979 by members of Songs of Freedom and Struggle, carries forward the vision of using songs and performance arts for people to live in peace and justice.

To all impacted by the history and continued practice of systemic racism in this country, that has spiraled into yet another unprovoked brutal murder of a Black American by police,

To anyone who has been racially discriminated against in education, healthcare, jobs, poverty, voting or who has not felt free to move about in "the land of the free" without suspicion, harassment or arrest,

We stand with you in solidarity. We stand with you against racism and indifference.
