PROTESTRA
 is heartbroken by the suffering and staggering loss of life we continue to see in Gaza. As the devastating events of October 7 once again positioned a global microscope over Israel and Palestine, we have been horrified by the unnecessary violence that has occurred over not just the last few months, but several decades.

We don’t pretend to have a political solution; we urge political leaders and others with the power of influence to implement an immediate ceasefire and work to find a peaceful way forward that prioritizes human rights. Violence against any civilian—Palestinian, Israeli, Muslim, Jewish, Christian—is never acceptable.

On June 29, PROTESTRA will hold Music in Action: A Concert for Aid, a benefit concert to support organizations providing emergency relief to those affected in Gaza. We hope that through the power of art and collective music-making, we can come together as a community and recognize our shared humanity.

We condemn the continued and disproportionate assaults that have left Gazans in a humanitarian crisis and believe that sending aid is urgent. We want to take action in a tangible way to support civilians caught in the crossfire and help alleviate suffering in any way we can.

We hope you’ll join us in collaboration with The Brooklyn Nomads on June 29. PROTESTRA will donate all ticket proceeds directly to The Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF) and Anera (American Near East Refugee Aid), two 501(c)(3) charities working tirelessly to provide displaced civilians with crucial food and medical aid. Leading up to the concert, you can also join us in making a greater impact by donating to and/or sharing our crowdfunding campaign for these important organizations.
