We at The Racial Imaginary Institute wanted to promote this important 24-hr performance piece by artist and performer George Emilio Sanchez, which is happening at the Abrons Arts Center on December 8th and 9th. It is a performance “filibuster,” calling attention to and challenging our nation’s refusal to implement gun control. The event will focus on gun violence and how we live in, and enable, a gun culture in the United States.  The 24 hours will cover, address, and single out the various elements and causes of gun violence in today’s society.  Part of the performance will be dedicated to calling out all 538 elected members of Congress and their position on gun reform.  The entire event will be live streamed.
