Concert for America benefits six non-profit organizations serving a diverse audience, but all having a similar focus: fighting for civil and human rights for all Americans. These include NCCJ, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, National Immigration Law Center, NAACP, Southern Poverty Law Center and Sierra Club.
“During this time of unprecedented levels of polarization among the people of our country, it is impossible to miss the rise in Racism and anti-Semitic rhetoric, the violent targeting of Muslims and Sikhs, people threatened or demeaned and even killed because of their race, ethnicity, genders, religion, sexual orientation---and the list goes on,” said Dr. Andrea C. Kandel, President and CEO of NCCJ Connecticut and Western Massachusetts.
“It is as if we’ve forgotten how to belong together. That is why the tenacious dedication to the mission of NCCJ as well as each of these organizations, who have dedicated themselves to fighting for human and civil rights as well as environmental rights in our country, is more important now than ever before. NCCJ is proud to present Concert for America; Stand Up, Sing Out! and partner with these other human and civil rights organizations since we believe that we are ALL stronger when we work together.”
