Repairing the Breach – Northwest
a fund-raiser for Project Voice

Annie Patterson Peter BloodFolksingers Annie Patterson & Peter Blood, creators of the popular songbooks Rise Up Singing (the Blue Book) and Rise Again, are doing a “tour” of virtual singalong concerts inspired by the Poor People’s Campaign. Project Voice, the Oregon/Washington immigrant rights program of the American Friends Service Committee, will be the beneficiary of this event. All are invited to join in song and spirit via Zoom while supporting the work for immigrant rights.

During this time of COVID, Pedro Sosa, director of Project Voice, has continued to build leadership and resiliency in rural immigrant communities through virtual education and training. Many immigrants fill roles as essential workers. Many have also suffered the devastating loss of jobs and homes due to the pandemic and the summer wildfires. Pedro has helped organize crucial mutual aid and COVID education outreach to these communities.

Please visit the website to purchase tickets, and learn more about the musicians and Project Voice. Ticket sales will be shared between the musicians and Project Voice. There is also a link to donate directly to Project Voice.
