WAR CALL COVER ART

 
There’s no getting around it, the current political climate is a battleground. Add rising murders of Transgender women (specifically, Transwomen of color) to the already increasing issues being faced by the TLGBQ community, and it’s no wonder a song like War Call was created.
 
War Call, the debut single and music video from NYC based trans hip hop artist Mizz June, addresses these issues using powerful visuals and rhythmically layered beats. Directly following the screening of the music video, there will be a panel/discussion with the artist and representatives from community organizations who’re taking action around bettering the lives of Transgender people.

 
Organizations such as FIERCE! NYC - a membership based TLGBQ youth of color organization in The Bronx that empowers its members through youth led campaigns and leadership development programs; House of GG  – the first national retreat site, educational, and historical center dedicated to Transgender people in the USA, and New Alternatives a non-profit geared towards empowering homeless TLGBQ youth by providing them with valuable tools such as education and basic life skills trainings that will ensure self sufficiency beyond the NYC shelter system- will discuss how we can support each other, and move forward during these intense times. Show up, and learn how.
 
 
This event is FREE!
