Together We Rise: Awakening, Justice, the Arts & Community

Join us for Thrive East Bay's 3 Year Anniversary Celebration Together We Rise: Awakening, Justice, the Arts & Community with beloved teacher & author Larry Yang, cherished singer-songwriter Sparlha Swa, award-winning poet Janae Johnson, and the heart-opening Thrive Choir.

We are awakening. We are rising up. Together. Honoring our grief and pain. Healing our separation. Making art, music, and revolution. As our movements grow and the stakes rise higher, how can we realize the full potential of awakening in community and create a stronger sense of togetherness for the liberation of all?

What: Thrive East Bay is a community that brings people together at the intersections of belonging, meaning, the arts, and social change. Thrive Sundays are an opportunity to connect with a diverse and inspiring group of people; to be uplifted by music, singing, poetry, and story; and to experience the transformative power of community in service to a just and flourishing world.

When: Sunday, August 26 from 4 - 6pm (please arrive on time!)
