We are living in a social emergency.
Throughout 2016, signs of the current social emergency continued to increase—state sanctioned violence against the Black community, gentrification, the Dakota Access Pipeline, privatization, Flint Water Crisis, etc. Then the horrifying Trump win underscored the reality that we are all living in a state of social emergency, even if it affects each of us differently.

In emergencies like hurricanes and tsunamis, emergency response centers exist to coordinate evacuations or provide services like temporary housing, food, and water. We want you to join us in re-imagining response centers to take on the real and pressing social emergency that we are facing today.

Social Emergency Response Centers (SERCs) are temporary, emergent, and creative pop-up spaces co-led by activists and artists around the US. They function as both an artistic gesture and a practical solution.

We will heal, learn, and share joy and food together. Schedule will be posted here shortly. Please come out and bring others to share in this one-time pop-up experience together!

This event will also serve as a fundraiser for the Black Workers Center in Anacostia, DC.
