Local Partner news: The Bread & Roses Heritage Committee cordially invites you to a fundraiser event

An Intimate Evening with Si Kahn
A legendary folk singer/songwriter and social justice activist

  • Date: Friday, March 26, 2010
  • Location: Washington Mills loft overlooking downtown (270 Canal St)
  • Time: 6pm to 9pm

From his roots in Lowell, Si moved to the South as an activist in the Civil Rights Movement. He earned a bachelors degree from Harvard, and now lives in North Carolina. Si is the founder and Executive Director (until May 1st) of Grassroots Leadership, a non-profit organization that advocates for several causes, including prison reform, improved immigration detention policies, and violence prevention. He has performed to appreciative audiences at several Bread and Roses Festivals.

Sponsors of the event will receive a personally autographed copy of Si’s new book, “Creative Community Organizing” and his new “Courage,” about the quiet heroism of everyday people. Throughout the evening you will be treated to great food from Party Connections, truffles from Café Verde, plentiful drink, meaningful conversation, and Si’s music performed “just for you.” You’ll have a chance to request your favorite Si Kahn songs, to ask Si questions about his music and his work, and to talk with him “up close and personal.”

All donations will go to the
