Part impresario, part rousing community organizer and performer, Sarah Sophie Flicker has become a central figure in the anti-Trump resistance. Rooted in it all is her belief in the political power of art, the artist’s capability and responsibility to reflect the times, and how this is critical in building a strong movement. Flicker founded the political cabaret group The Citizens Band, organized get-the-vote efforts, campaigned for reproductive rights, and has directed feminist-minded films. After Trump was elected, she worked closely with the Women’s March, helped organize A Day Without Women, and is a key member of the Resistance Revival Chorus. Flicker coauthored Together We Rise, a book that documents the monumental work of the Women’s March and the movement that has risen in its wake. Defying injustice at every turn, Flicker continues to be an inspiring advocate for an equitable and humane world.
