Blue Ridge to Zagros Dessert Benefit
March 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Join community members for vegan desserts at the Block Off Biltmore! We’ll be talking about the Rojava Revolution, a feminist, pluralist, and ecological revolution currently taking place in Northern Syria against the backdrop of fascism and warfare.
A sliding scale donation of $10 to $20 — with no one turned away — covers your desserts and benefits an upcoming delegation of community members from Western North Carolina who are travelling to Rojava to participate in and observe the radical transformation taking place. The event will include a short film followed by presentation and discussion! Bring extra dollars for a limited edition t-shirt designed by local artist Emily Eagan to celebrate the upcoming Rojava/Appalachia exchange!
Note that this event is NOT at Firestorm although Firestorm is hosting an Internationalist Commune of Rojava Q&A on March 16th!
