“The People’s Inauguration” will feature artists, musicians, faith leaders, and movement leaders. Programming consists of teach-ins, performances and discussions around core themes of wonder, grief, fight, rage, listen, reimagine, breathe, push, transition and joy. The participant lineup includes such names as Alysia Reiner, Aloe Blacc, America Ferrera, Cristela Alonzo, Debra Messing, Emily Tosta, Florence Pugh, Gina Belafonte, Grace Pekrul, Jamie Margolin, Maggie Wheeler, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Peppermint, Rachel Bloom, Rain Phoenix, Rashad Robinson, Rosario Dawson, Russell Craig, Taylor Schilling, Tracee Ellis Ross, Ai-jen Poo, Baratunde Thurston, Caitlin Breedlove, Deepa Iyer, Isa Noyola, Lisa Sharon Harper, Rabbi Sharon Borus, Resistance Revival Chorus, Sherrilyn Ifill, Simran Jeet Singh, Susan Raffo and Van Jones.

“It will be a celebration of what’s possible for this country,” Kaur says. “In the wake of violence, insurrection, and white supremacist terror, we are bringing people together around healing, justice, and community. We invite people to share their vision for a multi-racial America where we are all safe and free.”

Marlee Grace 

“My copy of this book is dog-eared, tea stained, and annotated beyond recognition. Getting to Center is like a long late night conversation with your best friend that reminds you of your own radiant messy perfection. This book will open you to knowing and loving yourself in ways that previously felt impossible. I’m jealous you get to take this ride with Marlee Grace for the first time.” Taylor Schilling, actor
