Description

The Riverside County Brady Campaign and the Riverside Resistance Revival Chorus will present music to increase the peace. This is one of the concerts across the U.S. to advocate for an end to gun violence. The concert will include the song "Shine," written by two of the young women who survived the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Guest artists include the Afro-Latin band "El Santo Golpe"; singer-songwriter Jenny Garcia; Rachel Mendivel and others. Admission is free. The hour long concert will be followed by an "issues fair" that will include a voter registration booth and information about community organizations related to gun safety, suicide prevention and civil rights. Sept. 23 is the day Congress designated as a day of remembrance for murder victims. This nationwide event will bring together a network of organizations, activists and artists to remember the victims of gun violence across the nation and in our state.

Cost: Free
