US Legends Tour To Support Women’s Refugee Commission

by Paul Cashmere on July 25, 2018

in News

Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Shawn Colvin, Lila Downs, Steve Earle and Graham Nash will perform a series of shows to support the Women’s Refugee Commission.

Women’s Refugee Commission’s Migrant Rights and Justice (MRJ) Program has a long history of documenting conditions at the U.S. border for asylum-seeking women and children and then advocating for their rights and protections.

“The Women’s Refugee Commission has been on the front lines in advocating for the safety of women and children. Their work is as remarkable as it is critical, especially right now.” said Emmylou Harris. “It is my honor to partner with this incredible organization and to bring my friends along for what I know will be a powerful tour.”

“This administration tore children away from parents who were trying to save their lives by asserting their legal right to asylum with no intention of reunifying them.” said MRJ Director Michelle Brané. “It is imperative that we all raise our voices against these dystopian policies. Art and music have long been an important part of advancing social change and we are thrilled to be partnering with such a remarkable group of talented musicians committed to justice.”
