Join Elise Bryant and Charlie King for a concert sponsored by Peace Action of Michigan on the theme "If You Want Peace, Work For Justice".

“Next time someone asks you about the labor movement rather than explaining it, introduce them to Elise Bryant instead. Her art, her politics, her way of being, all blends into one. When she sings, you can feel the age-old longing to live without oppression, war and bigotry. When she speaks, you can feel the radical impulse to stand with your fellow workers all around the world..." Matt Bates, Machinists Union

"Now there's a writer! There's a powerful voice!. Somebody I deeply, deeply love love. Charlie King has motivated more young singers and songwriters into writing songs about social issues than any person on this planet that I know of. I admire him a great deal." U. Utah Phillips

Elise Bryant is a singer, actor, writer and spoken word artist. She currently serves as the executive director of the Labor Heritage Foundation, a non-profit organization that is the “art and soul of the labor movement.” Elise is a lifetime member of the Wobblies (Industrial Workers of the World) and a member of the AFM Local 1000.

Charlie King is a musical storyteller and political satirist. Pete Seeger hailed him as “One of the finest singers and songwriters of our time.” He is the 2018 recipient of the Phil Ochs Award and the Joe Hill Award. Like Elise, Charlie is a Wobblie and a founding member of AFM Local 1000. Folk legend Peggy Seeger says, "If we had more Charlie Kings in the world I'd be less worried," and Tom Paxton adds, "Luckily, we have him!"
