Summer Radical Playdates!

Saturday, August 12, 2017
1pm–3pm

Radical Playdate has been in full effect since February 2017. So far, we’ve made a zine, we made stencil graphics, created a growing resource list of music and storybooks, and we even had a little music protest parade. Now, we’d like to talk more about how we can make Radical Playdate more “radical,” and to expand our all-ages community. If you’ve been thinking of showing up, now is the time to do that!
