This election and the events since have made me search for how I could be part of a solution. It recently occurred to me that many are looking for a way to process their emotions and be a part of a solution. This Saturday, I invite you to join me as part of that solution in community, action and love at the "Charles Duke Action Concert." Our goal is to raise $2,000 for the New York Civil Liberties Union, one of the nation's foremost defenders of civil liberties and civil rights. 100% of the profits from ticket sales and donations will go to the NYCLU supporting their initiatives defending civil liberties in New York. We all can take our emotions and combine them with our gifts. And we as a community can impact and transform this world. I invite you to donate, share this flyer, and join me and my band this Saturday, November 19th at 10 PM at the Sugar Bar. For more information, please visit Thank you for your support!!!
