On Friday, June 2, Indivisible Chatham will be hosting a mock town hall on women’s rights in front of Republican Congressman John Faso’s house in Kinderhook. Can a motivated group of dismayed activists grow their grassroots movement into a coalition capable of winning elections? “It’s easier to resist when all the cards are against you, it’s very motivating. Now we just have to win some elections.” — Indivisible Chatham, N.Y., founder Alan Gelb
“The power of theatre lies in its ability to transform our understanding of all human experience. There cannot be boundaries in the arts. We do not discriminate. Our buildings are sanctuaries for everyone to tell their stories.”
— Kate Maguire, artistic director, Berkshire Theatre Group
The Berkshires goes to the protest: a taste of the festivities. Our Edgecast video crew with Edgecast Copter was on hand for the New York City Women’s March on January 21, 2017 which drew an estimated 400,00 to 500,000 participants, among them quite a few from the Berkshires.
