Take a Stand Marching Band

A street protest troupe performing in Southern California and beyond

Take a Stand Marching Band is a street performance troupe, which began at the Los Angeles Women's March on January 21, 2017. The troupe resists the injustices unfolding under the Trump administration and within local communities. Take a Stand Marching Band uses Elana Mann's sculptures, the “hands-up-don’t-shoot-horn” and “histophone,” and other musical devices, joining demonstrations with sculpture, song and dance. 

Interested in taking part, writing a chant/song, or supporting in another way? Please contact Elana Mann or visit the FB page.
