"Originally prompted by the extreme violence in Palestine that left an 8-month old baby dead, this collective of artists got to work to create music that could raise funds for the civil rights cause in the region. However, once news broke that the current US administration was separating immigrant families fleeing violence and persecution, detaining them indefinitely in cruel conditions, we knew we had to take a stand against what's been happening here, too. We are all rightly horrified by the racism and violence that seems to be the hallmark of our era.
