"As our country responds to the pandemic, one of the fundamental pillars of our Democracy is deeply affected: the right to vote,” shares JusticeAid Co-Founder Steve Milliken. “We’re motivated to get the necessary resources to individuals nationwide, including local and state officials, so they can adapt to the new changes brought on by COVID-19. The JusticeAid virtual concert, Voices To Protect The Vote, shares inspiring music and poetry to move us all to fight voter suppression. JusticeAid is raising money so that every person who wants to vote will be able to—easily and safely."
Each year JusticeAid organizes concerts and public forums to educate the public about key civil rights challenges, while raising vital funds to support grassroots organizations addressing these issues with this year’s focus on voter engagement and voter suppression.
