The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights is pleased to join The GRAMMY Museum® in celebrating the launch of their Speak Up, Sing Out songwriting contest with The Concert For Social Justice on April 8, 2015, at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. Jackson Browne, David Crosby & Graham Nash, Melissa Etheridge, La Santa Cecilia and Tom Morello are the first performers announced for the concert, which will also feature special performances from actors Dennis Haysbert, Chad Lowe, Martin Sheen, and Alfre Woodard, and the winner(s) of the Speak Up, Sing Out songwriting contest.
“Music has always been at the heart of social justice in America,” said Kerry Kennedy, President of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights. “Abolitionists in the 1860s and civil rights protesters in the 1960s both marched to anthems of peace and justice. With this concert, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights and the GRAMMY Museum seek to teach our young people that music can be a force for good in the world.”
