Friday, January 18, 2019 – 7:30 PM | Cultural Arts Center, Silver Spring, Maryland
Thank goodness—we had a Blue Wave in November’s elections, and we’re nearly halfway through this frightening tenure of the Trump Administration. Whenever we’re tempted to think that their policies (and his tweets) just couldn’t get more dangerous… they do. Health care and climate change. Reproductive choice, birth control, and LGBTQ rights. Fear-mongering about refugees and immigrants. Disrespect for our free press and for women. Cozying up to dictators and denial about Russian election-hacking. President Trump and his policies have been a daily challenge.
For the third year, we are hosting an UnNaugural Concert. In both January of 2017 and January of 2018, hundreds of progressive music fans enjoyed 5 performers at a concert that raised money for 5 progressive causes under attack by this Administration. In 2019, we will be supporting another 5 groups working on affordable housing, domestic violence, environmental clean-up, poverty, and suicide prevention.
It’s time to gather again on Friday, January 18th! Whether or not you are planning to attend the January 19th Women’s March on the National Mall, we need to be lifted up by music and a sense of community.
Please plan to join us for another magical evening that will make a difference for your spirit… and for the hard-working advocacy organizations we are supporting!
Best for the holidays and for continued efforts to make a difference on progressive causes!
Cheryl C. Kagan
Founder and Executive Producer

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
