Description

From Palestine to Puerto Rico, Sudan to Standing Rock, Berlin to Brooklyn and beyond – a mass movement of people is interconnected not only in our struggle against injustice, but in celebration of our collective power to demand and create change. Decolonize. Solidarity. Liberation. Love. What do they sound, look, feel like in action? Join host Zahyr Lauren – aka The Artist L. Haz – to explore these questions with trailblazing artists who are using cultural power to confront erasure and censorship with creativity and connection. Produced by and centering the voices of women, queer, trans, and gender-expansive artists, The Solidarity Index is guided by the fact that no one of us can be free until everybody's free.
