Our friend, Mark Baumer

Frequency is heartbroken over the loss of writer and activist Mark Baumer. Mark was struck by car on his 100th day of crossing America barefoot. He was walking to raise awareness of climate change, and in support of the work of the FANG Collective.

Mark was a friend to many of us, and he performed at Frequency events on several occasions over the years. His humble empathy, humor, compassion, and creativity distinguished him as a much loved poet and friend of Providence and the greater community. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family and friends. Mark, you inspire us and we miss you.

A celebration of activist, writer, performance artist, librarian, son, friend, and vegan superhero Mark Baumer’s life will take place at 2:00-4:00pm on Saturday, February 4th at Brown University’s Granoff Center in Providence, RI. All are warmly welcome to attend. It will be a beautiful afternoon of holding space together in remembrance of Mark and his compassionate spirit.

Event location: Granoff Center for the Creative Arts at Brown University, 154 Angell St, Providence, Rhode Island 02906.
