Due to the tremendous success of the Empowering Womxn of Color Open Mic, we are officially launching this Open Mic Series at La Peña!

With the blessing of our collaborators from the Womxn of Color Initiative at UC Berkeley, we are now offering this curated open mic to center the voices of BIPOC, Women, LGBTQ+ folks, Immigrants/Migrants, and all other voices that have been historically marginalized and underrepresented. We want to hear you, support you, and transform the world with you!

  • Get your donation-based tickets now! This event is made possible 100% by your contributions. Please consider donating what you can to ensure that this event can continue.
  • Sign up to volunteer! Each shift includes free food and beverages.
  • Sign-ups to perform are now CLOSED. Thank you for participating! We will contact selected artists on Monday, January 30th, 2023.
  • Doors open at 7:30pm. We recommend arriving early to get some food at Los Cilantros!
