The event creator says
In a world where a handful of rich men control the government, where women fight to control their bodies, where immigrants escaping war and poverty are met with fear and mistrust, where handlebar mustaches rule the streets and massage therapists are leading the march for justice . . . well, it's either Austin, 2014 or New York, 1914, but whenever we are we need to find the crowd-charging, hard-writing, fast-dancing, freedom-fighting, polyamorous, Lithuanian-Jewish anarchofeminist firebrand inside us all! It's time to answer the question: where oh where is . . .
