Tacoma Writers Resist: Launch

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
― Assata Shakur

“It is easier to resist at the

beginning than at the end.”
― Leonardo da Vinci

“Humanism is the only - I would go so far as saying the final- resistance we have against the inhuman practices and injustices that disfigure human history.”
― Edward W. Said


What will our community need to work for justice in the future? What role can writing and storytelling play in creating just, compassionate, and democratic communities? How can we come together to foster the strength, love, and resilience needed for resistance?

Join us for a night of readings and performances that invite us to consider democracy and radical imagination. Featured writers include Cathy Nguyen, Charys Bailey, William Kupinse, Marquis McCrary, Keith Blocker and many others.

Music by DJ Chill-D.

Doors open for refreshments from 6:30-7:00.

Readings and creative work from 700-9:00 PM.

This event is FREE and open to the community.
