J20 Block Party

Build and Fight 2018

On the one year anniversary of Trump's inauguration, communities around the country will gather to reconnect to the roots from which their movements draw strength, discuss the path ahead, and gather resources for prisoners, relief efforts, and ongoing struggles.

In Asheville, we're kicking off a week of rebellious activities with a Haywood Road block party to share food, fun, and knowledge. This is a free event open to everyone so bring your friends and let's talk about where we want to go from here!
