Alanis Morissette, John Popper and Chan Kinchla of Blues Traveler, Michael Franti and Spearhead, and Joe Henry will perform at the Voters for Choice benefit concert at Washington, D.C.’s D.A.R. Constitution Hall on September 25th.
Voters for Choice founder Gloria Steinem will host the show, and proceeds from the event will go towards the national organization, which works to elect pro-choice candidates into political office. “This concert is our call to action and kicks off a year of organizing to elect a pro-choice Congress, which will protect this fundamental human right,” Steinem said in a statement.
Past Voters for Choice benefit shows have featured Pearl Jam, Melissa Etheridge, Neil Young, Ani DiFranco, the Indigo Girls and many others. Tickets for this year’s show go on sale September 7th through Ticketmaster.
