For those feeling frustrated and scared in light of the current political climate but are unsure how to channel their feelings productively, Rock and Resist will bring community action groups and musicians together at the Bearsville Theater on June 11. The event will feature 10-minute speeches, interspersed with music, on voter registration, women's rights, immigration, health coverage, and environmental efforts in the Mid-Hudson region specifically. Singer-songwriter Marc Black will emcee and lead the audience in song. Representatives from Planned Parenthood of the Mid-Hudson Valley, New York 19 Votes, interfaith ministers, environmental groups Riverkeeper and Clearwater, health care, and local Democratic Party officials will table in the bar area of the Bearsville Theater. Rock and Resist will be held on June 11. Doors open at 3:30pm and the event starts at 4pm. Donations are encouraged. (845) 679-4406.
