The #ICANTKEEPQUIET project is dedicated to celebrating our unique voices and identities, in an effort to break the cycles of oppression and fear, perpetuated by today's media.
The first project was the #ICANTKEEPQUIET choir of D.C., which started the movement of guerilla style performances at The Women's March on Jan 21st, 2017. The choir sang for unsuspecting strangers in the DC area with flash mob performances of an acapella version of "Quiet".
The name of the project is based on Los Angeles musician MILCK's 2nd original single, "Quiet". The chorus sings, "I can't keep quiet, no no no/ A one woman riot." The song comes from a personal place, as she herself is a survivor of abuse, anorexia, and depression.
This event is for the San Diego "I Can't Keep Quiet" flash mob on April 8, the I Can't Keep Quiet Day: https://youtu.be/9lxG9cyvcRE

Please wear pink (to stand out) and bring a sign that says "I can't keep quiet because (fill in the blank)"
MEET ON THE PRADO WALKWAY ACROSS FROM THE MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS. IF THERE ARE A LOT OF VENDORS OR PERFORMERS WE WILL FIND A SPOT NEARBY.
Here is a video of how it was performed in Sweden: https://youtu.be/yyx4Lpz_vjg
This is along the lines of how I hope our project will turn out. If you are able to help with musical direction please comment!
