On Monday, July 18, the Standing Together for Justice Concert and Benefit, a night of peaceful protests songs calling for a stand against racism, sexism, and xenophobia, will be held during the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Cleveland, OH at the Agora Theatre and Ballroom.

 

Standing Together for Justice Concert and Benefit  is organized by Stand Together Against Trump, Singing for Justice Meetup Group, and local and national musicians.  San Francisco-based artist Pete Kronowitt, who is releasing his critically acclaimed new album A Lone Voice, will be joined by bassist John David Coppola. Standing Together will also feature performances by popular Cleveland bands including Brendan O’Malley with Small Batch, Swap Meet, Matt Harmon, and Allison Beyer from Chicago. Concert proceeds will support Cleveland-based charities St. Paul’s Church and the Thea Bowman Center.

 

Against the backdrop the RNC’s scheduled events, Standing Together’s musicians will be playing for the thousands of protesters who will be drawn to Cleveland. Standing Together performances will mirror the voices of the groups who will be protesting, singing to highlight what Americans have in common, while rejecting those issues manufactured to divide us. Standing Together will give voice to those who demand common sense solutions from our political leaders.
