Protect or Serve: Harriett’s Sisterhood Sit-In

Monday October 12, 2020 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm | Fishtown

Organized by:

Harriett’s Bookshop


258 E Girard Ave Philadelphia, PA + Google Map


My sisters, my neighbors, my friends, no one is coming to save us.

Just like historic heroine, Harriett Tubman, we are destined to free ourselves.

So in the spirit of sisterhood, in the spirit of freedom and justice for all and in the face of vile and consistent threats we say come stand with us, better yet come sit with us as we present clear and concise ways to protect or serve one another. So let us move toward the tumultuous 2020 election and beyond with literal and figurative “tools” in our toolbox.

What better day than Indigenous People’s Day, OCTOBER 12 to avenge our pasts and imagine our futures.

At this outdoor (yes we are blocking off Girard in front of the shop), physically distanced event, we will be SOCIALLY CONNECTED through song, movement, conversation, and practical next steps.

We have so much respect for the line up of speakers and artists who agreed to join us and of course there will be plenty of BOOKS to bring the demonstration to life.

Please follow all COVID-19 guidelines and seating is first come first serve.

See you soon.
