EarthChurch w Vinie Burrows

September 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Actor and Activist Vinie Burrows will accept Fabulous Sainthood from her neighbors and Reverend Billy & The StopShopping Choir.

Vinie Burrows broke barriers her whole life, she began her career on the radio as a child and has been performing for almost 90 years! Vinie joined (and soon led) The Church of Stop Shopping’s now infamous First Amendment cell phone operas in 2003, performed weekly  at Ground Zero in 2003.  After decades on Broadway she toured the world with her one-woman show Sister Sister and has worked tirelessly for peace her entire life. She is a leader of Women for Racial and Economic Equality (WREE) and a longtime participant in the Raging Grannies.  Vinie teaches us tenacity and good humor, peace as a way of life, and what it means to live a creative life. We are grateful for her presence in our community and honored to be witness to her Sainting!

Saturday Sept 24 at 4PM we join the Klezmatics in Washington Square Park on the closing day of the Village Trip Festival. Our set starts at 4. Come by!
