PMN has a growing archive of videos from our past gatherings and events on our PMN Youtube Channel!

We re-organized the channel to make everything we’ve recorded since 2015 much easier to find. What’s new is footage from PMN’s January 2017 Winter Gathering where we had 200 people and high energy! One participant wrote: “Great Fri concert, excellent workshops, youth, diversity – one of the best gatherings ever.”  Another said, “It feels like PMN involves heart. The times when people can connect — not just with the latest political idea song but with an experience of heartfelt social justice commitment — glues us together.”

Thanks to videographer, George Aguiar, for his work over the last 3 years to create this valuable video resource!

Videos from PMN Social Justice Songs Showcase @ NERFA 2016

You might also enjoy seeing the PMN Social Justice Songs Showcase that was presented at the 2016 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference in November 2016. We presented 12 selected songs that we felt were relevant to today’s social justice struggles in that showcase, and used the opportunity to reach out to artists about PMN.
