Call for Change: Band Together Against Racism

August 12, 2020 / 7pm / WRAL


To our incredible Band Together family,


We had originally intended to host a community concert this year in celebration of our 20th year of service but like many of you, COVID-19 pandemic has inspired us to pivot.


While our organization’s impact this year won’t be as originally intended, it’s still vitally important to us that we continue supporting our community in ways that matter. That’s why we’re partnering with the United Way of the Greater Triangle to present Call for Change: Band Together Against Racism a virtual telethon to support the Anti-Racism Community Fund.


The Anti-Racism Community Fund aims to turn the nationwide conversation we’re all seeing into local action by providing resources to develop Triangle-wide community leadership and invest in anti-racism, systemic solutions to poverty. This event is about bringing our community together for the opportunity to listen, learn, and let music amplify a call for change. 


We hope you’ll join us now and on August 12 when we launch a virtual telethon with WRAL featuring concerts from national artists at local landmark venues. 


We'll see you virtually on August 12! We'll send you an email with event details.
