Founding members Herman Bell and Robert Seth Hayes (Rest in Power) were welcomed home from prison in 2018. Learn more about them at certaindays.org.
This year’s theme is “Creating a New World in the Shell of the Old” and features art and writings by Alanna Kibbe, Comrade Z, David Gilbert, Daniel McGowan, Eric King, Hanif Bey, Jesus Barraza, Leila Abdelrazaq, Martha Hennessy, Montclair Mutual Aid, Oso Blanco, Peter Railand, Roger Peet, Shukri Abu-Baker, Tauno Biltsted, Wendy Elsheva Somerson, Windigo Army, Virginia Lee, Xinachtli and Xue.
