We had a great benefit for the ACLU in Fairfield County at Stage One at the beginning of the summer. It raised over $2,000 for ACLU National and ACLU CT. In case you missed it, you can watch some of the highlights here. It was a night full of amazing artists, sponsors and fans coming together to promote equality, and it happened to coincide with Fairfield Pride.
However, since June there has been an uptick in violence and hate throughout the US. It continues to weigh on us (and the rest of the country).
On June 13th, 5 people were shot during a congressional baseball practice in VA, 3 were killed at a UPS facility in San Francisco that same day, and most recently on August 12, the world witnessed the horrible racial violence that occurred in Charlottesville, VA during an “Unite the Right” rally.
Our founder launched a t-shirt company last November called endviolencenow.org. Three t-shirts, three causes, three ways you can help spread the message of hope. Each t-shirt is $25 and 100% of the net proceeds goes to our designated charities this summer. Please watch our short video below and visit endviolencenow.org to get your t-shirt today. Feel good. Look good. Do good!
Finally, we will be hosting our next annual All Sounds Fair in June 2018, stay tuned for our winter Indiegogo campaign so we can make this benefit festival BIGGER and BETTER than ever. Equality is Key!
Peace, love and light,
-Alex & the cool ASF team
