With our country in crisis and open racism on display more and more, these artists recognize that now is the time to stand up for racial justice. Their free performances are intended to inspire us all to commit ourselves more deeply to a racially just world and to do so consistently through our lifetimes. There are many ways to do that but most importantly we must turn thought, online posts, and intentions into impactful sustained action.

The profound racial injustices that are tearing our nation apart were created over generations in systemic ways. We know that this cannot be changed with a thought or a post but what can we do? There are many ways we can be impactful and we will talk about some of those during the event. But sometimes we need to rally and act together, and sometimes we have to make a shift and step up to a bigger commitment. So for this one day, Sunday July 5th we will focus on one extremely impactful approach. We must deeply and monthly invest in leading racial justice organizations so that they can count on our sustained support in leading this movement forward.

Take this step with us. Get your free tickets at www.eventbrite.com and join us in supporting NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
