As part of The Network/La Red’s campaign Survival and Resistance: Power with Survivors, Power for Communities, comes our first event — Wild Tongues: Stories for Ourselves. Inspired by an excerpt in Gloria Anzaldua’s Boderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, this event aims to reclaim power by highlighting the experiences of survivors of partner abuse and/or oppression with poetry, music, plays, photographs, choreography, etc. The event will be held at 6:30pm on June 29th, 2017 at the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry at 10 Putnam Street, Roxbury 02119. Doors open at 6pm.
