American Podcast about Raised Voices at the Put It To The People March
American Public Media podcast Marketplace reports on Raised Voices at the Put It To The People march.
Many of you who knew Cynthia Cockburn will have heard the sad news that Cynthia died on 12th September 2019. She was a very long-term member of Raised Voices and was instrumental in setting up Campaign Choirs Network. She contributed a huge amount to Raised Voices, including the words of more than 20 songs. We are missing her very much. She was a strong feminist and radical thinker, campaigner, writer, photographer, with a great interest in birds and nature, and a warm friend to so many people.
You can find a tribute site on the Campaign Choirs website, and an obituary in the Guardian.
Raised Voices is currently planning a memorial to take place in 2020. If you are a past member of Raised Voices, and haven’t yet heard from Thea, please email us at as some contact details we have are out of date.
