RuDee Sade Lipscomb - "AMPLIFY FERGUSON"

RuDee Sade Lipscomb - "AMPLIFY FERGUSON"

SmG: I hope you are all well. I wanted to let you all know about an amazing project SmG Music is now a part of. AMPLIFY FERGUSON is a community empowerment and media project led up by my dear friend RuDee Sade Lipscomb. The goal of the project is to facilitate and promote peaceful, action-oriented solidarity with the citizens of Ferguson, Missouri. Amplify Ferguson is a group of concerned citizens from around the country.

As you all know, activism has always been a part of my music. What’s happening in Ferguson isn’t a black or white issue. It’s a human being issue. Empathy, discourse, love, and action are all necessary ingredients in not only creating awareness and but also ending systemic racism in this country. Race and marginalization aren’t easy to talk about but are nonetheless essential to our survival as a species.

I’m sending out this message to any of you who are interested in getting involved. SmG Music will be traveling down to Ferguson later this month. More specifically, we are looking for: (1) Artists to contribute art to raising awareness about the situation down in Ferguson, (2) additional project coordinators who are interested in working on the ground down in Ferguson, and (3) writers/editors interested in helping us get unfiltered, professionally done content onto platforms interested in publishing the truth of what’s going down in Ferguson.

I know this is a lot of information so if you have any questions please reach out to me. The days we are looking for volunteers on the ground are October 1st thru October 4th. Food and lodging will be provided.

We’ll be announcing a couple shows down in Ferguson with all proceeds going towards rebuilding that community.

Here is a link where you can check out the project: .
