Live outdoor event to celebrate diversity, oppose discrimination with music, art, speakers

BRATTLEBORO—Rock Against Racism VT — a group of artists and musicians working together to fight discrimination and promote diversity in southern Vermont — will hold its first live event on Sunday, April 18, at 4 p.m.

Join the group’s members at the Third Eye Collective in Brattleboro for music by Portland, Maine–based Eniam, speakers, and art demonstrations.

The event takes place in the lot next to 80 Flat St. (the C.F. Church building).

Organizers describe it as “an opportunity to make connections with artists, musicians, performers, local businesses, and activists supporting minority communities and pushing back against racism in Vermont.”

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, space is limited, and masks and a normal temperature reading are required for entry.

Tickets by donation (minimum $10) are available at Jezebel’s Eatery in Wilmington, as well as at The Void and the Third Eye Collective in Brattleboro.
