Inflection Point: Artists and Activists in the Resistance-Sarah Sofie Flicker and Paola Mendoza

Sep 3, 2020

On today’s IP we're going to take you back in time--to right after the election of Donald Trump,

and introduce you to the leaders of the first Women’s March in 2017 to hear what we can learn about the role of art in activism for 2020. As national organizers for The Women’s March and leaders of The Resistance Revival Chorus, artist activists Paola Mendoza and Sarah Sophie Flicker see their purpose as connecting fellow members of The Resistance to the moments of joy and transcendence that come with being a part of history in the making. They walk in the footsteps of the Nina Simone’s and Joan Baez’s and Aretha Franklin’s of the world--the artists who helped to fuel the Civil Rights movement by nourishing the souls of the people who marched for freedom.

Inflection Point is taking a break, so this will be our last episode for now. Please stay in touch, check out past episodes and hear more from Lauren about this change here.
