Rise UP Singing! The power of song in social movements.


When and Where:

Saturday Afternoon, November 11, 2017 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
at Christian Theological Seminary 
Room 122, 1000 W. 42nd Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208
Event Description:
Every successful social movement in modern times has been powered by singing which flows, with conviction, from heart and soul.  Group singing motivates people to get out there and work for change, inspires them with courage to act for justice and peace, and upholds them for the long haul despite obstacles.
Rise Up Singing participants will engage with some of the most iconic and powerful movement songs, with video clips, discussion, and singing led by the incomparable Jeremiah Sanders.  In the second hour, each person will choose a contemporary social movement breakout:  civil rights, worker justice, human equality, and environmental protection.  Facilitators will lead each group in creating new words to one of the old songs to give it fresh relevance, and then sing it for the whole group.

Join us to be inspired, energized, and renewed!
Jeremiah Marcèle Sanders, Annette Johnson, plenary leaders
Jason Fishburn, Rev. Rae Karim, Marty Miles, Cory York, breakout leaders
Presented by Earth Charter Indiana; Indianapolis Worker Justice Center; Desmond Tutu Center for Peace, Reconciliation, and Justice; and Christian Theological Seminary.
