Be a part of non-violent action. Join us as we gather again this year at Bookends and Beginnings (1712 Sherman Ave. Alley #1) on Sat. May 12 at 6pm in Evanston to offer our voices in resistance to the current state of local, national, and global affairs that threaten to pull us apart and even set us against each other.
