Justice or Else Youth Benefit Concert
Organized by: Janay Watts
EVENT DATE Sep 26, 2015
We are living in a generation where folks are fed up with injustice and taking steps to tranform the systems of oppression as we know it. Each person can contribute their own talents, knowledge, and experience in one way or another to move the movement.
This year, marks the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March in Washington D.C.! On 10.10.15 people from all over the country will converge on D.C. for this historic moment at a crucial time in our history. Events such as this are remembered for generations to come. I was inspired, and wanted to ensure that some of the youth from our communities could attend such a powerful event at no cost to them or their families! We are raising funds to allow youth to fly out to D.C. for 10.10.2015. The initial goal of $5000 is to cover up to ten flights, but the more youth we can send, the better!
The Justice or Else Youth Benefit Concert will feature Spoken Word artists and musical talent from the Stockton, Sacramento and Bay area regions. Each artist has volunteered their time and talent to raise money for youth to go to D.C. Entry price: Donation at the door Fundraising Goal: 5,000 minimum, to allow 10 youth to travel to D.C.
