Join our gathering of creative, spiritual, intellectual and political leaders to unite and empower young voters this Saturday May 10
Tickets are Free ~ All are Welcome
Festival organizers are thrilled to announce that the United We Stand Festival will be held today, May 10, at The Belasco Theater, 1050 S Hill Street in Downtown Los Angeles. Doors open at 4PM and the show starts at 5PM.
Christina Tobin, founder and chair of Free and Equal, stated:
“We are creators of our own fulfillment, and when creating something that entails actual real change, obstacles will be in the way. But I will not give up. I am committed to activism to create a better world, and I am playing my part in advocating for a balanced economy, sustainable environment, and level playing field for all. I am also very dedicated to elevating women's leadership on the critical issues of our present times and ensuring women are equally represented throughout our society."
"We are so very grateful to The Belasco Theater for accommodating Saturday’s festival with less than 24 hours notice. This event sets up an even greater path for future festivals. We look forward to producing an inspiring and empowering event for our talent and guests today."
