REJOICE! (2020)

Event details (also listed below) over image of young girls singing, praising

October 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

“In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy – in that let them rejoice; it is better than what they accumulate.”

We have been reminded numerous times this year of the callousness of capital and those who serve it. We have also been reminded of the value of community and focusing on our shared humanity during this time of growth and change. Before the mercury dips too much, let us align our intentions towards the uplift of humanity. Let’s celebrate the lives of the new ancestors and be an example for our children.

We will make a joyful noise in the Garden and livestream it via Twitch! DuiJi 13 and Particle Ray will be providing the soundtrack.
Starfire will be our host with the most!
