Story

On Sunday, June 28th, we presented We the People: A Call to Action, an evening celebrating Black voices through art, music, poetry, and more. 

There is a recording available to everyone who donates!

We the People is a collaboration between 4 artists of color working to:

  • Uplift and center Black voices
  • Provide a public platform for Black artists to express themselves in whatever way they feel moved to
  • Raise funds to support these artists
  • Raise funds and awareness for organizations fighting for Black liberation

Lyonel Reneau hosted this live digital benefit featuring artists from NY, Chicago, and LA: 

Alyssa GregoryBreon Arzell, James Ian,  Kelley Williams, Malynda HaleMarion Grey, Michael Damani, Rashaad Hall, Reggie White, Tosin Morohunfola

All proceeds from this event will go directly to the artists, as well as The #LetUsBreathe Collective, The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, and Black Mamas Matter Alliance

Systemic racism and state-sanctioned violence have worked to silence Black voices for too long. The time to listen up is overdue.

Please join us in uplifting Black voices, now and every day moving forward. Black Lives Matter, and we need to keep fighting until that is reflected in our society.

We had ASL interpreters for this event, but our recording did not capture them. We are sourcing another recording that has their interpretation OR will provide a recording with captioning.

Thanks for your time,
Aja Wiltshire
Dana OmarTina Muñoz-Pandya, and Lyonel Reneau

*We the People is hosting this event independent of MPJI, BMMA, and #LetUsBreathe. We are responsible for delivering funds raised to these organizations. Any questions or concerns about this fundraiser should be directed to [email protected]
