to learn about and share what is happening right now, and to strategize for the future. Through mutual understanding and respect and a commitment to stand together
we can forge a movement to secure our communities and assure that
the arc of the moral universe continues to bend towards Justice
(to paraphrase M.L.K.).

Fri., 3/31, 7pm-  Live Concert with RENEE JANSKI with SUMMER OSBORNE!
PCW is excited to host Renée Janski with special guest Summer Osborne.  Many of you might remember Renée as one third of the fabulous Big Bad Gina and might have caught her solo show at last year’s Ohio Lesbian Festival!  Janski has performed operatic and oratorio pieces internationally and played nationally with various rock, bluegrass and jazz ensembles. Her Rollicking Solo shows are hilarious and thoughtful and keep her audiences thoroughly entertained! We’re looking forward to hearing tracks from the new solo cd that she is working on, Brand New Day.
Renée will be joined at this performance by Summer Osborne. Her music can loosely be described as folk soul, acoustic rock, and piano pop… but you will hear glimpses of jazz, blues, and comedy. She writes and sings real music about real life and every show is an emotional experience! It is the evolution of the soul – one song at a time.
Sliding scale donation of $10-20 (more if you can/less if you can't.) Feel free to bring a beverage and, if you can, bring a folding chair too if you want to be guaranteed a chair!.  Tickets are only available at the door beginning at 6:30pm.
