INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence organized SisterFire, a national women of color multimedia arts tour that traveled across the country. INCITE! members organized SisterFire because they recognized the transformative power of creative cultural work. In recent years, SisterFire performances have been organized in several cities and towns across the U.S.

This Sunday, October 26th, from 3:30pm until evening, the Los Angeles chapter of INCITE!, hosts SISTERFIRE LA, a Women of Color and Trans People of Color multimedia art performance showcase against violence, featuring local artists, musicians, and other creative souls.
