"Voices of Resistance," a powerful community gathering, will bring people together from many social movements to share our stories about how we are surviving economically and building fulfilling lives while working for peace and justice.

It is hosted by The Resistance Studies Initiative, UMass Amherst; the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee, and the New England fall gathering of war tax resisters.
