GOODFolk’s 3rd Annual Toshi & Pete Seeger Sing-a-Long

Pete believed in the power of song and did not believe in singing alone. Come together and let's make a big and beautiful sound.
The Toshi & Pete Seeger Sing a Long is an opportunity to raise our voices in song and support community activist. Each year we sing and shine a light on folks doing great work in the name of truth and justice. We honor the path and spirit of Toshi and Pete who did this kind of movement building work for most of their lives.

All proceeds benefit BEFORE IT'S GONE // TAKE IT BACK: Documenting Brooklyn - Fighting Gentrification (B4G), a neighborhood and web-based response to the crisis of gentrification of Brooklyn, NY
BEFORE IT'S GONE // TAKE IT BACK: Documenting Brooklyn - Fighting Gentrification (B4G) is a labor of love. We truly love Brooklyn - our peoples, our working to middle class communities, and our vibrant cultures. So it is our duty to fight to stop gentrification and save affordable housing. We do not want to see one more family or elder displaced. We will not allow another greedy landlord or developer to push our people out. We refuse to allow Brooklyn to become merely a playground for the rich. We say, “Before it's gone! Take it back!" and together, united, we believe that we will win. #BrooklynIsNotForSale
BEFORE IT'S GONE // TAKE IT BACK: Documenting Brooklyn - Fighting Gentrification is a Brooklyn-wide project of Equality for Flatbush
