Music and social justice are inextricably linked in American history, and on October 19 at Washington, DC’s Lincoln Theatre the two converged once more for JusticeAid’s fall concert featuring Mavis Staples and special guest Amy Helm.

Did you miss the concert? Or would you like to relive the memories?

JusticeAid’s fall campaign and proceeds from the Concert exceeded our goal to raise an additional $100K for the Police Accountability/Community Empowerment program of Neighborhood Defender Service. Together with the success of donor support for JusticeAid’s virtual Robert Glasper concert in May 2021, this year JusticeAid’s grants to NDS PACE totaled $421,242! Thank you to each ticket buyer*, donor, and sponsor whose support will help stamp out racist policing.

Don’t miss the photo galleries of both the concert and the author talk with Professor Kris Henning held prior to the concert. You can access a video recording of the author talk and the concert program

With our heartfelt thanks,
The JusticeAid Board
