No keeping them quiet
GLOVERSVILLE — The Glove Cities Huddle Group held a small sing-out-loud rally in Gloversville April 8 to celebrate and support the #icantkeepquiet movement.
On that date, choirs and individuals gathered at 1 p.m. around the country to sing out, speak up and express themselves.
“We are singing to show activism is alive and well,” member Samantha Clarke stated in a news release. “We are singing to be seen in our community. We are singing so our voices can be heard. Most importantly, we are singing as a reminder that we will not stand idly by as the current administration tries to derail the social and environmental progress our country has made.”
Artist MILCK’s I Can’t Keep Quiet became an international protest anthem at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. The project is dedicated to celebrating the unique voices and identities in an effort to break the cycles of oppression and fear, according to the release.
Lyrics and song performances can be found at www.icantkeepquiet.org.
The Glove Cities Huddle is a local, grassroots citizen-led inclusive organization that provides a forum for civil discourse to explore issues and concerns. According to the release, the organization formulates and implements opportunities to improve the lives of everyone in the community.
