Global Solidarity Day

Frost Library, Front of library

Join Amherst College and our surrounding communities for an afternoon of books, music and conscientious fun! For five hours, let us put aside any differences we may have and band together to generate some much needed positive energy and funding for international relief efforts that work to support those most in need of humanitarian assistance. Currently in-the-works is a book sale as well as live music and dance provided by current and former residents of the five college area. This event hopes to serve as a reminder that in times of darkness, we must each find the courage to shine brighter, burn stronger and illuminate farther—together, we can absolutely make a difference!
