La Causa's "Voices 2018: Land Is Life"

La Causa is bringing you the 21st year of Voices, New England's largest free spoken-word concert! This year, we are making a deliberate effort to connect Voices weekend to struggles happening on the ground and in our communities. As such, we’ve decided to give this year’s event a theme: "Land Is Life." Join us in decolonizing the arts at Amherst College and hearing from a wide range of artists flying in from across the country. Let them inspire you with their enthralling words and performance. Let us celebrate the beauty of spoken word and the power behind it. Invite your friends, family and everybody! Food will be provided by Fernandez Family Restaurant at 5:30 p.m., and performances begin at 6 p.m.

This year's marvelous lineup:
José Olivarez
Power Struggle
Terisa Siagatonu
Porsha Olayiwola
Paul Tran
Safia Elhillo
