The climate justice organization, 1000 Grandmothers for Future Generations, is hosting an online fundraising concert to benefit the Georgia voting rights organization Fair Fight and the senatorial campaigns of Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
As you know, Democrats Warnock and Ossoff are facing Republican opponents Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in a runoff election for Georgia’s two Senate seats January 5. If they win, the US Senate will be divided 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans, ending Mitch McConnell’s ability to block anything good from happening.
Georgia Voices for a Blue Senate will bring together Georgia musicians with a range of acoustic styles, as well as a few non-Georgia stars.
The lineup includes:
Rhiannon Giddens (her father is from Georgia 😉
Emily Saliers (of the Indigo Girls)
Revival Resistance Chorus
Joyce and Jaque Lisset and Judith Rodes
Mick & Evan Kinney
Andy Offutt Irwn
100% of the proceeds will be split evenly between Fair Fight and the two Senate campaigns.
Sunday, December 13, 8 PM Eastern, 5 PM Pacific
The event will be hosted on the 1000 Grandmothers Facebook page, other Facebook pages, and YouTube. Check back later for more links.
