Benefit for www.jailguitardoors.org
It’s a program championed by Brother Wayne Kramer of the MC5 and supported by cats like Tom Morello, Billy Bragg and Billy Duffy as well as a bunch good people who truly want to help under-privileged folks. Here’s what they do:
We seek opportunities to produce out-reach events and programs, in cooperation with prison officials, that bring musical instruments and education programs to the prison population. From our experience, we know that music can give voice to deep complex feelings in a new, non-confrontational way.
We produce events and campaigns that raise funds for our work and awareness for prison reform issues and solutions. We seek to work in coalition with social service partner organizations to advance successful ex-prisoner transitions back into the community after incarceration.
Kind of heavy, I know… but important…
