…and It’s All Thanks to Your Generosity
Together, we battled injustice across the nation, and proved that fighting for freedom can be a lot of fun.
JusticeAid is proud to support charities nationwide whose missions seek to eradicate barriers to justice and equality, and our mission continues into the new year because of your support. Every cent of our concert ticket sales has gone directly to our beneficiaries leading the fight against injustice.
SHOWING THANKS TO SERVICE MEMBERS
In September, you helped us take over Washington, D.C.’s historic Warner Theatre to honor and benefit our veterans in need. Grammy Award nominees Trombone Shorty and Shemekia Copeland brought the house down for a great cause. Shemekia Copeland’s compelling, soulful blues vocals had us glued to our seats, and Trombone Shorty’s energetic fusion of jazz, funk, hip-hop, and rock ’n’ roll had everyone on their feet. Famed West Wing actors Melissa Fitzgerald, Allison Janney, and Janel Moloney reunited on stage to lend their time and talents to keep the good times rolling, and by night’s end, JusticeAid amassed over $200,000 for an incredible organization – Justice for Vets.
See event photos and two special videos below: our West Wing emcees’ Walk and Talk video and an inspiring salute fro Michele Obama’s to JusticeAid’s Host Member, Cedric King.
BIG SUPPORT FOR THE BIG EASY
Earlier this year, we set our sights on New Orleans, where music is inextricable from the city’s historic aura, and a vent for communities in which access to justice is too often a struggle. Your support sent thousands of dollars to the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) there, whose attention to at-risk youth has made them a regional leader in juvenile justice rehabilitation services. Thanks to your support and the phenomenal talents of Jazz Fest favorites Theresa Andersson and NOLA natives Flow Tribe, JusticeAid turned New Orleans’ Botanical Garden at City Park into a celebration of music, justice, and equality.
LOOKING AHEAD. MAKING AN IMPACT.
We can’t wait for what 2015 has in store, and with your continued help, the new year will be our biggest yet. You can continue your pledge to support JusticeAid right here.
FROM ALL OF US AT JUSTICEAID, THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
