Jackson Browne, David Crosby and Graham Nash, and Melissa Etheridge will headline The Concert for Social Justice at The Fonda Theatre on Wednesday, April 8.

The concert will be produced in partnership with Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights and the GRAMMY Museum. KCSN 88.5 is a media sponsor.

Additional headliners are La Santa Cecilia, Tom Morello and Rocky Dawuni.

The Concert For Social Justice will also feature special spoken word performances from actors Dennis Haysbert, David Arquette, Chad Lowe, Martin Sheen, and Alfre Woodard.

The purpose of the concert is to highlight the power of music as a tool for social justice.  Performers are expected to play a collection of songs that have helped generate change over the past five decades.

Funds from admission tickets support the organizations’ joint K-12 education program, “Speak Up Sing Out: Songs of Conscience.”

That program, first piloted in Los Angeles schools in 2014, invites middle-school and high-school students to write songs about social justice issues using materials from the RFK’s Speak Truth To Power human rights curriculum, and the GRAMMY Museum’s Civil Rights curriculum.
