Join PM Author and activist Vikki Law at the Garden House for the Seattle book launch of Don't Leave Your Friends Behind: Concrete Ways to Support Families in Social Justice Movements and Communities.
How do we create new, non-hierarchical structures of support and mutual aid and include all ages in the struggle for social justice? Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind is a collection of concrete tips, suggestions, and narratives on ways that non-parents can support parents, children, and caregivers in their communities, social movements, and collective processes. Let's build an all-ages, inclusive revolution that leaves no one behind.
Join co-editor Victoria Law and Seattle-area contributors Andrea Givens and Simon Knaphus for a reading, discussion and celebration of ways to support families in social justice movements and communities. Let's build an all-ages, all-inclusive revolution that leaves no one behind!
