Limited Capacity seats available

The Crenshaw Dairy Mart—an Inglewood-based artist collective and art gallery dedicated to shifting the trauma-induced conditions of poverty and economic injustice—will host two performances as part of their session presentation. The first activation will present a unique iteration of #jailbeddrop, an experience which consists of a performance and interactive installation rooted in challenging our inherent notions of crime and punishment. The work contextualizes and facilitates a space to explore interpersonal accountability and reflect those values back on our “criminal justice system.” This work is currently in support of “Yes On R”, which will be on our March 2020 ballot. The second performance entitled “It’s Dangerous Times, We Have to be Connected” by Patrisse Cullors and noé olivas will ask attendees to join in a procession that encourages them to think more deeply about racial terror and gender injustice and engages participants to connect with one another.
