Sing Out the Vote
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")
The U.S. is at a critical crossroads this fall. Will we continue relying on leadership that spreads fear, resentments, and untruths or move towards restoring the earth and assuring justice for all? A key issue is winning back this country is how to mobilize voters who support change to get vote.
We held this Sing out the Vote "tour" of 5 online benefit concerts for specific key swing states and regions- rasising at least $8000 for Movement Voter Project and probably quite a bit more.
