Work Party on March 14 to Beautify the SJC

We all love the Center and our new team has begun the process of bringing the first floor of the Social Justice Center into the modern age! On Saturday, March 14 from 12 PM-3 PM, we are inviting you to help with the second work party. Angelica, Laura and the entire board have spent time thinking about what we need to do to update the space to make it a vibrant space folks want to spend time in. Our vision is part functional meeting and event space, part musical venue and part social justice cafe! 

Folks already use the space for all those things, now we just want to make it look the part. We are very excited to do this work to create and fun, vibrant space for everyone in our activist community now and for the years to come. 

Please follow along with our journey to update the space because we need your support!

BELL'S ROAR and dancealisadance

posted May 16, 2011, 11:16 AM by victorio   [ updated May 16, 2011, 11:21 AM ]


Bell's Roar is the Solo Project of Sean Desiree. The music builds from its layered guitar effects, lusty beats, and crisp vocal stylings, at times, reminiscent of 1930's crooners. Though her songs are anything but sentimental.

dancealisadance composes original music as inspired from sad room/root of their little giant heart. dancealisadance sings about heartache, oceans, being a mom and queer/dear love.

Back to the Roots Tour

posted Jan 5, 2011, 11:41 AM by victorio   [ updated Jan 5, 2011, 11:55 AM ]

Evan Greer from Riot Folk and Spiritchild from Mental Notes

w/ Special Guest Chris Clavin from Ghost Mice & the OUT OF THE BASEMENT FILM FEST!


ABOUT THE BACK TO THE ROOTS TOUR:
rEvolutionary hip hop for justice
queer riot-folk for liberation

Hip-Hop has been gentrified. Folk music has been watered down. Punk rock sold out. Inbthe face of this mainstream betrayal, two of the movement's most dynamic performers have joined forces to take their respective genres BACK TO THE ROOTS, celebrating the role of music in people's resistance to oppression around the word. Evan Greer and spiritchild are revolutionary artists from radically different musical styles who share a common commitment to using their craft as a tool and a weapon in direct support of grassroots struggles for change

Purple morning glories
First "Feather Weight"© Green Roof ever installed is now on our roof! This is a great new technology that allows us to have the benefits of a green roof; better urban air quality, cooler building in the summer, and animal habitat, without the intense weight that our old roof cannot support . This design is based on plants that vine with the soil concentrated on the parapets at the perimeter. Many thanks to the NYS DEC for pr oviding us with the grant to create the roof. Thanks also to Hudson Valley Natural Building for the design and installation.
