Dear <<First Name>>,

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS OPEN for the PMN Winter Convergence! It takes place at two venues (in Midtown Manhattan & East Harlem) from January 24-26, 2020.
 
The PMN/NYC Organizing Committee, which has already hosted two PMN events and has been organizing together for over a year, believes that politically-conscious musicians and poets have a special role to play in this moment of global crisis.  We face rising seas, militarism, race hatred, economic inequality, gender violence, and border walls.  But we know music can move people to action, so we too must rise in song to meet these challenges.

The role of the People’s Music Network is to help our members join forces with each other -- both musically and politically -- so that we can be more effective in bringing music into the peace and justice movements that we are part of.  Every part of the 2020 PMN Winter Convergence will embody collaboration.  We will rise to meet the historical challenges we face!

WORKSHOP PROPOSALS STILL BEING ACCEPTED – DEADLINE: DECEMBER 20, 2020
If you have an idea for a workshop session that will enhance this weekend of creativity, collaboration, activism, and singing, please get in touch ASAP!  Workshops at PMN are led by gathering participants.
