Kicking off on November 18th from 6:30p-8:30p, join us for Celebrating Resistance Story Hour, a series of lively gatherings featuring personal storytelling, community resistance, and celebration! Join Political Research Associates for inspiring stories, food and drink, dancing and great company to help us celebrate the 100th Issue of The Public Eye magazine. 

Funds from this event will support the critical research and analysis Political Research Associates provides to social justice movement organizing groups fighting oppositional forces from the Christian Right, White nationalists, and corporate oligarchies — whether vigilante or organized within the halls of power.

Four events to choose from: 

November 18, 2019 | Middlesex Lounge, 315 Massachusetts Avenue | CAMBRIDGE, MA 

December 4, 2019 | SF LGBT Center, 1800 Market St. | SAN FRANCISCO, CA

Want to tell Your Story?

Fighting for social justice begins with a story. For PRA, this is a story of resistance. For nearly 40 years, PRA has brought social justice movements eye-opening, reliable research and analysis on the oppositional forces that attack individuals, communities, and institutions fighting fearlessly to build power that advances our democracy and ensures all of us thrive.

Whether you identify as a grassroots organizer, advocate, writer, artist, educator, scholar, donor activist, or a concerned individual seeking to inform your political analysis, we want to hear your story.

At Celebrating Resistance, we will feature personal storytellers live at one of four venues (Cambridge, San Francisco, Chicago, or New York City). For those who want to share, but cannot attend, we would love to feature your story in our event materials as a collection.

Each storyteller will have 5 minutes to tell their story from the stage. Stories should be true. But, feel free to be as creative as you would like in telling it. Personal stories can be about an event that happened, something you witnessed, a moment of personal reflection or a time when you changed someone’s perspective.

To nominate a storyteller (including yourself!), please apply here. Selected storytellers will be asked to join a prep call 1-2 weeks prior to the event. Deadlines for submissions are rolling based on event locations listed below.

Cambridge, MA: October 25 Deadline (Storytellers announced November 6)

San Francisco, SF: November 1 Deadline (Storytellers announced November 15)

Chicago, IL: December 15 Deadline (Storytellers announced January 6)

New York, NY: December 15 Deadline (Storytellers announced January 6)
