Resisting Tyranny One Song at a Time

The Jersey City Resistance Choir is a community group in downtown Jersey City dedicated to raising funds and awareness for at-risk groups and organizations in our current political climate. We get together on a weekly basis to talk about current events, sing songs, and hold seasonal performances as fundraisers for groups we are sponsoring. Each season we choose a politician in the administration to "roast" and raise funds for a group that will be at-risk for disenfranchisement and loss of constitutional rights.
