“The number of reasons to support Indigenous efforts is the same as the number of souls who inhabit the world. White gluttony tried to kill off the very people who understood the language of the land. We chose to be owners instead of guardians, and we became a cancer. If we want to survive, we must support Indigenous efforts.”– Fiona Apple
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the disproportionate inequality that exists in the United States among people with low incomes, people of color, and those living in remote and extremely rural communities.
NOISE FOR NOW is a national initiative that enables performers to connect and financially support grassroots organizations that are dedicated to empowering women and protecting women’s health and abortion rights.
