Mass Liberation Arizona – Black Friday November: You Are What You Eat
November 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Hey all! We invite you to the third installment of “Black Friday Fundraiser”!
“Black Friday Fundraiser” is a series of curated art showcases dedicated to raising funds for local, Black led, directly-impacted organizations, programs, non-profits, collectives, and projects.
On Friday, November 27th, from 6:30 pm – 8 pm, MLAZ is holding a fundraiser for Drinking Gourd Farms, a network of Black farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders focused on the physical, mental, and spiritual health of Black people through agriculture, political education, environmental stewardship, and culture-rich, healthy cooking.
November’s theme is “You Are What You Eat”; to subvert the settler colonial holiday of Thanksgiving. Our fundraiser and artist showcase will also triple as an introductory lesson on the benefits of vegetarian and vegan diets for Black and Indigenous people. Lastly, in opposition to the capitalist invention of Black Friday, WE are asking YOU to not shop on Black Friday, but instead to SUPPORT BLACK ORGANIZERS on Black Friday!
This time we’re keeping our performers a secret until 24hrs before the show, so stay tuned on our social media and email list for updates!
Our fundraising goal is $2000; we want to significantly aid Drinking Gourd Farms as they develop a collective food sovereignty practice across Phoenix fields, backyards, vacant lots, apartment balconies, and public spaces!
This event will be available on both Mass Lib AZ’s Facebook live and Zoom: you can register for the Zoom meeting here www.bit.ly/blkfridaynov.
Lastly, the donation link is around up & running! If you’d like to donate before November 27th, you can visit this link www.bit.ly/blkfridayfund and share it with others to get a headstart on our $2000 goal!
