Voices in Action Concert: Artists Against Oppression
Voices in Action Concert is a telethon-style event that will livestream on Sunday, July 5th from 9am to 9pm PST (Noon - Midnight EDT) to raise money for the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (LDF). The event came about through “how can we show up?” conversations between artists, arts producers, and promoters distressed by the death of George Floyd and the unrelenting tide of police violence towards Black people. Incredible artists and rising stars have signed on to join the concert, such as:
These and many more will be performing throughout the 12-hour event. We will hear poetry, singers, musicians, and performers of all nature putting their voices into action in order to reach a goal of $100,000 in donations.
The telethon style event will provide free high quality entertainment and just like an old fashioned telethon attendees will learn more about the organizations and have the opportunity to donate to the organizations directly.
The concert is free — simply register on the Eventbrite page https://bit.ly/viaconcert to livestream it on July 5th.
Voices in Action is an effort of passionate multiracial artists and community members to increase immediate and ongoing donations for organizations on the forefront of racial justice and protecting Black lives organized completely by volunteers. This concert benefits the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. Find Voices in Action Concert on Facebook, Eventbrite, and www.voicesinactionconcert.com
