We’re all excited that Esperanza is arranging an evening of remarkable music on December 4th in New York to benefit FTS. Buzz is building in the media, too! We hope you can join us. There are still tickets available for the event at the City Winery.
Esperanza just recorded a personal video invitation for her friends and supporters in New York, and for abolitionists like you too!
This concert is an amazing opportunity to see a Grammy-winning jazz musician performing up close. Esperanza will host a meet-and-greet reception with VIP ticket holders, and she’ll be auctioning off personal items – all to benefit Free the Slaves.
I was asked by a journalist the other day why we “chose” Esperanza to be our “spokesperson.” The truth is that she chose us! She was quietly contributing to FTS when we noticed her name in the database. So I gave her a call – and she picked up the phone herself in the middle of a photo shoot. It turns out that Esperanza was already a fan of the FTS model of community-based action to end slavery. She immediately volunteered to help us do more. And that’s how the December 4th benefit concert was born.
If you live in the New York area, get your tickets now, or buy a ticket for a friend. It will be a night you’ll never forget.
