WeSing aims to bring people together through the intersection of social justice and song. We gather weekly on Zoom to sing music with a social conscience, to engage in discussion and actions around the injustices in our world, and to foster healing, connection and resilience for our strength and wholeness in the Movement. WeSing strives to be an actively inclusive, anti-racist, anti-oppression community and we invite you to read our statement on our website (www.lisaforkish.com/wesing) to learn more about our practices and commitment.
In the words of June Jordan, "we are the ones we've been waiting for." Join founder/director Lisa Forkish in this life-affirming community of humans as sing into the growing and necessary movement for our collective liberation. Singing is your birthright. Your voice matters. You are loved and appreciated. All are welcome / no prior singing experience required.
