Most people get into music or art in general as a form of expression. The lucky ones are able to make enough money to support themselves, but in general, music is a means to get the word out, whether its personal or the general trials of their fellow humans. With the incoming presidential administration, a lot of human rights are in danger and it is good to see groups of artists pull together to combat it, in any form possible.
Our First 100 Days aims to raise funds and awareness for organizations supporting causes that are under threat by the proposed policies of a Trump administration.

About The Organizations:
All Above All unites organizations and individuals to build support for lifting the bans that deny abortion coverage. Our vision is to restore public insurance coverage so that every woman, however much she makes, can get affordable, safe abortion care when she needs it.
Cosecha is a nonviolent movement fighting for permanent protection, dignity and respect for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. We are exposing the repression that our community faces and creating spaces of protection and resistance to defend ourselves and our communities. We are creating spaces of sanctuary and building community teams that can respond quickly to the raids, detentions, and deportation crises.
People’s Climate Movement is seizing the first 100 days of the Trump Administration as our own and putting all of our energy toward stopping Trump and Congress’ attacks on our climate, our communities, and our jobs and advance our vision of new American economy that protects our planet and people.
Southerners On New Ground (SONG) is a regional Queer Liberation organization made up of people of color, immigrants, undocumented people, people with disabilities, working class and rural and small town, LGBTQ people in the South. We believe that we are bound together by a shared desire for ourselves, each other, and our communities to survive and thrive. We believe that Community Organizing is the best way for us to build collective power and transform the South. Out of this belief we are committed to building freedom movements rooted in southern traditions like community organizing, political education, storytelling, music, breaking bread, resistance, humor, performance, critical thinking, and celebration.
Hoosier Action is a new project focused on building the political power of working families and individuals in the state of Indiana. Hoosier Action emphasizes robust community organizing, where campaigns are built around economic and social issues that impact people and communities across the region. Hoosier Action will work to increase voter participation, lift people out of poverty, and build a new political voice for the residents of Indiana who have been left on the margins.
