Virtual Concert Series

This fall, Calling All Crows is teaming up with the Multifaith Initiative to End Mass Incarceration to host a series of virtual concerts across the country as a part of our Unlocked Voices campaign. Each concert will take place in a different city, partnering with local community organizations that are working to provide hygiene supplies to prisoners and to help those who are being released early from prisons due to COVID in New York, Georgia, California, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Texas, and Tennessee. These virtual concerts will also include local artists from each state. 

Our virtual concert series partners are:

Ending Mass Incarceration

Black and Pink Boston

Crossroads United Methodist Church

Exodus Foundation

Free Hearts

Unheard Voices Outreach

MUSIC AND FAITH COMMUNITIES HAVE THE POWER TO END MASS CRIMINALIZATION

We will contribute to this movement by:

 

  • Amplifying the stories of people, especially womxn, impacted by incarceration;

  • Acting in partnership with existing movement leaders and community organizations as we bring in new supporters;

  • Producing an 8-part concert series to connect movement leaders with new supporters, celebrate the movement, and drive action; and

  • Educating and activating music and faith communities

THE US MASS CRIMINALIZATION CRISIS IS MADE WORSE BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

COVID-19 is spreading rapidly through jails and prisons, which is unsurprising given the high concentrations of people and lack of space, healthcare, and hygiene products. There is already a strong movement to support Black lives across the US; part of this movement includes changing the way we think about public safety and releasing people from jails/prisons so that they do not suffer or die from COVID-19.

We are leveraging the resources of the music and faith communities to acquire and distribute hygiene supplies and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) with our partners to people in and recently released from prisons in New York, Georgia, California, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Texas, and Tennessee.
