On September 11, the visionary musician and social activist Michael Franti bring you the 6th Annual 911 Power to the Peaceful Festival. This festival combines music, art and activism to uplift spirits and spread awareness.

The event is in its 6th year with this year's mission in unifying, strengthening and preserving the peace and justice movement. Michael Franti states, "The 911 Festival began in 1999 as an international day of art and culture in support of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal. The name 911 was chosen to call attention to the emergency status of Mumia's impending execution and 9/11 was the date of the first event. We expanded the event in 2000 to show support for all prisoners on death row, and to speak out against the exponential growth of the prison industrial complex. In 2001 the day of September 11th took on a wider significance as a result of the tragic loss of life by the attacks of the day. The 4th event in 2002 created a space for healing and compassion for ALL the people killed or displaced by terrorism and the war on terrorism."

In addition to the main stage, the festival features an open-air art gallery showcasing political visual artists, a healing arts tent offering massage and yoga, guerrilla theater, a DJ tent and green commercial vendors and food booths and more than 100 social and political organizations.

911 Power to the Peaceful will be promoted as a Western Regional Mobilization and Concert. Past events have drawn audiences upwards of 20,000 from around the world. It is a FREE event in a beautiful location in Golden Gate Park. Bring your faith in the power of peace and justice and join us at the 911 Power to the Peaceful Festival, promising to be an enlightening, enraging and inspiring event!
