Episode 45: Artists, Venues Use Their Music and Spaces to Speak Up for Rights, Equality

As the inauguration approaches, many artists are using their voices to champion platforms and organizations that support rights and equality for women, minorities, and LGBT populations among others.

This episode highlights artists and venues who’ve chosen to use their platform to speak out against the hateful rhetoric and policy proposals that have led up to the inauguration. It features statements from Little Scream, Emily Nokes of Tacocat, Sarah Fridrich, and Vivan Thi Tang and Jack Inslee, organizers of We for She.
