Event description

Description

This is a F R E E Conference.

We are encouraging advance registration

The conference will feature performances by Bobby Jo Valentine.

Bobby Jo Valentine is a singer/songwriter who chases after a particular kind of music. He writes songs that travel light, but that “grow deeper and deeper with each further listen”, the music publication Soundtrack to My Day describes. The poetic nature and focus of his stories and songs is something that, along with notable awards, has resulted in an incredibly loyal following of true patrons to his art, supporting Bobby in every way as he seeks to write more music that means something good, and sounds like the beautiful, terrifying world that we live in. Bobby is a proud supporter of equal rights for all people. He believes that we’re all in this together; that “the arc of the universe is long, but bends toward justice”; and that real justice means justice for everyone. Bobby is a constant supporter of LGBT rights and performs at Pride festivals and benefits and for LGBT youth programs all over the US. He has also been invited to perform for many child protection, child homelessness, and domestic violence prevention non-profits, including the national Safe Place Network. When he isn’t touring the nation singing his songs for everyone who will listen, Bobby lives on the windy coastline of Northern California. His website is at http://www.bobbyjovalentine.com/ His new album “Fox Eyes, Whale Heart” is available worldwide on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/bobby-jo-valentine/id419687282

In light of recent events, it seems more important than ever for people to come together to discuss & work together for justice, inclusion & peace. We will not agree on all of the issues, but we can find common ground & we can work together to advance justice, inclusion & peace. Please join us @ this conference & in these efforts.
