I'd sing out justice
I'd sing out a warning
I'd sing out love between my brothers & my sisters
All over this land
- Pete Seeger & Lee Hayes, 1949 ("If I Had a Hammer")
- We are at a crossroad as a nation. Will we continue relying on leadership that spreads fear, resentments, and untruths - or move towards a commitment to restore the earth and create justice for all?
- A critical issue this election will be how voters committed to progressive values get energized and whether people are able to vote. We can make a difference.
- This is one of five online concerts we are holding that each focus on key swing states or regions like this one focused on winning in North Carolina & Georgia. These concerts will raise funds for grassroots organizations that have a proven track record in mobilizing voters who can make change happen with their votes.
Please join us for this live online Singalong Concert on Friday, October 2nd at 7:00 pm EDT. This concert features musician activists Annie Patterson & Peter Blood, the creators of Rise Up Singing and Rise Again. We will be joined by the guest artists listed above at this show.
Your ticket will help fund these grassroots groups funded by Movement Voter Project. Find out more about MVP at https://movement.vote or give now to MVP HERE.
100% of donations to MVP go to grassroots groups getting out the vote in swing states. A portion of ticket prices from this benefit concert will also go to support Annie & Peter's work of creating social justice through music.
- Buy a ticket now - we will email you a Zoom link for the concert. (To complete your ticket purchase order click on the "BUY NOW" button at the bottom of the left hand column.)
- If you have a copy of our songbooks Rise Up Singing and/or Rise Again you can sing along from home.

- This concert will focus on grassroots organizing to put NC and Georgia in the "W" column for Biden-Harris and to win the critical senate races in these states. But you are welcome to join us for any of the Sing Out the Vote concerts for MVP listed at riseupandsing.org/vote.
Please help spread the word about these concerts. And help us create hope in this scary time, build community, and win back this country!
