What a truly inspiring evening of music for justice—an all-star band, exceptional vocalists, and the music of civil rights icon, Nina Simone, in support of JusticeAid’s 2023 grantee partner, Black Voters Matter.

A huge thank you to our ticket buyers, table hosts, Host committee, and event sponsors ESPN Films and Miller Chevalier Chartered, along with donors like you, whose contributions are fueling the fight against racist voter suppression.

All proceeds from the concert, and 100% of donations through October 2023 will go to Black Voters Matter. Help us meet our goal of raising half a million dollars for BVM!

Lisa Fischer and Jennifer Hartswick performed an exquisite rendition of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.” Enjoy the concert clip.
