PVC Solidarity Statement Against Racism

Peoples' Voice Cafe, started in 1979 by members of Songs of Freedom and Struggle, carries forward the vision of using songs and performing arts to support the struggle for peace and justice.

All are impacted by the history and ongoing practice of systemic racism in this country and the continuing brutal murders of Black Americans by police.

We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, outraged by the many faces of racism found in education, healthcare, housing, jobs, poverty, criminal justice, and voting. All must be free to move about in the "land of the free" without suspicion, harassment, or arrest.

Peoples' Voice Cafe stands committed to speak out, sing out, and work against racism, white supremacy, and indifference.
