    Revolutionary Yoga: A Benefit for People's Congress of Resistance

    Whether you have never done yoga before, or have been practicing for years, join us for an hour-long yoga class to raise much-needed funds for the People's Congress of Resistance — a network of organizations and individuals across the country forming a united front to oppose the loathsome Trump regime and its equally loathsome Congressional collaborators. 

    This class will be taught by Lili, a Yoga Alliance registered yoga instructor whose practice is centered around making yoga accessible to all. She has taught students of all age groups and levels of experience which led her to curate pose sequences that can benefit everyone. Her philosophy involves bringing yoga down to earth so that the masses can enjoy the strengthening and stretching of the body as well as the decompression and quieting of the mind. 

    The suggested donation is $15, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds! Please bring your mat if you have one, but we will provide some for those who need them.

    ANSWER Film Series "Salt of the Earth"

    A classic film about the fight for workers’ rights and women’s equality.

    Salt of the Earth is a powerful and emotionally charged film based on a 1950 strike by Mexican American and white zinc miners in Silver City, New Mexico. Against a backdrop of social injustice, a riveting family drama is played out by the characters of Ramon and Esperanza Quintero, a Mexican-American miner and his wife. In the course of the strike, Ramon and Esperanza find their roles reversed: an injunction against the male strikers moves the women to take over the picket line, leaving the men to domestic duties. The women evolve from men's subordinates into their allies and equals.

    Made during the height of the McCarthy era, members of the original "Hollywood Ten" united to create this impressively controversial labor film despite severe pressure from the U.S. government. These filmmakers were blacklisted and later imprisoned for refusing to answer Congressional inquiries on First Amendment grounds. 1953, 94min.

    Watch the film trailer.

    $5-10 donation (no one turned away for lack of funds)
    Wheelchair accessible.
