Our friends at YES! Magazine are hosting what looks to be a promising shindig next week. The 2nd Annual Celebration of People Power will be held on Wednesday, June 6, at 7:00pm and feature speakers such as Pulitzer Prize-winner Alice Walker (The Color Purple, The Chicken Chronicles) and bestselling author Frances Moore Lappé (Diet for a Small Planet, EcoMind). Music will be provided by Makana, the acclaimed Hawaiian songwriter and slack-key guitarist who made national news last fall when he performed his Occupy anthem, “We Are the Many,” for President Obama.
If you happen to be in Seattle, you should head on down to Town Hall on 1119 8th Ave to attend in-person. For the rest of us, the event will thankfully be streaming live. Tune-in to the live video stream here: http://yesmagazine.org/townhall2012
