We’ve marched together, wrote postcards together, stood tall, made art, and ate together — we survived the first 100 days together, and now we want to celebrate our creative resistance together.
100 Days Action is thrilled to host the No Ban Dance Party at Gray Area. Our lineup features DJs and music from the 7 countries on the travel ban, including Sepehr, Surabhi Saraf, Aria Rostami & Daniel Blomquist, DJ Ahmed, and Hagage Masaed. Come raise a glass to 100 Days of resisting the President of the United States.
Put your glitter on. People of all gender, race, religion, and sexual orientation welcome (21+). Your first 100 Day event? No problem! We’re building long term friendships, all are welcome.
