While Josh was out west shooting for his next film on climate change, he had the privilege of playing with legendary artist and activist Peter Yarrow. Before they began to play, Peter spoke about his experience playing with his folk band Peter, Paul and Mary at the March on Washington
Over 50 years later, we are still fighting many of the same fights, but that has not deterred Peter Yarrow from believing we can succeed.
Another important moment of action is upon us. A moment where we must stand up for justice for all people. A moment where we must take to the streets and let culture and activism work hand in hand to propel us forward.
We have had so many victories and so may defeats, but we have made huge progress. It is always the people’s movement marching in the streets that makes the difference.
Peter Yarrow will be there.
And we need you to be there too.
I’ll leave you with Peter’s words, which are much more powerful than mine.
“ When we go forth from here, we are not to remember it as simply a moment of beauty or inspiration, but to take it as something in our hearts that we share together, that will strengthen us on the journey to make sure that the next generations are taken care of.” – Peter Yarrow
Thanks and have a great weekend.
