Listen to Herstory: Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women

All Voices Choral Project (AVCP) presents Listen to Herstory: Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1300 N Street, Sacramento, 95814 at 7:00 pm on Saturday, November 23, 2019. 

This event is intended to bring awareness of the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women. Specifically here in the greater Sacramento area in which there are 13 cases according to Urban Indian Health Institute. The event includes Native ceremonies, music, dance, and narratives from those directly connected to missing and murdered women, as well as historical and practical information about what to do to promote change and bring justice. 

The AVCP choir sings choral music directed by Lee Hoffman and accompanied by pianist Kami Davis such as Jake Runestad’s Your Soul is Song and Mari Esabel Valverde’s When Thunder Comes featuring Kristy Oshiro and SOKO Taiko. We are passionate about the power of using music to educate, inspire and mobilize.

Special guest speakers and musicians include Shelly Covert, Nevada City Rancheria Tribal Council Secretary and Cultural Outreach and Spokesperson; Mariana Moscoso, Decolonization Project Founder; Melissa Leal, Tribal Liaison for Sierra College; Marge Grow-Eppard of MMIW&P (Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women and People) of California; Ronnie Hostler, grandfather of Khadijah Britton; Ray Varela and Reyes Meraz, singers; Frank Molina, lobbyist; and Marc Engstrom, Legislative Director for Assemblyman Jim Frazier.

Admission is free. Donations accepted. 50% of donations benefit the MMIW&P of California.

The mission of All Voices Choral Project is to harmonize the divide by educating, inspiring, and mobilizing people for justice through music.
