Defend Highlander, Defend Our Movements!
May 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Center for Political Education, Freedom Archives, and Reem’s for a happy hour fundraiser at Reem’s California honoring the Highlander Research and Education Center. On March 29, an arson attack destroyed the main office building at the Highlander Center and with it, some of the archives stored there. On May 3, we will raise funds to support rebuilding and continued programming at this beloved and revered movement resource and honor the crucial role in left movement building that the organization has played for nearly a century.
DJ Baagi will be providing the tunes, happy hour pricing on wine and beer all night, and Reem’s food will be available for purchase. A percentage of all sales will be donated to the Highlander Center.
To learn more about the fire and about Highlander Center’s pivotal role in movement building, check out this recent article by Robin D.G. Kelley and Makani Themba.
