This fall Invisible Children teamed up with New York and Los Angeles’ The Voice Project in an effort to amplify peace in Central Africa and help end the region’s longest running war through music and radio.
The dual-coast collaboration introduces The Musician Coalition – a dedicated group of artists uniting with their fans to raise $100,000 for a life saving radio network in Central Africa. Read interviews Sun Airway, Justin Pearson and Denison Witmer about their involvement with the Musicians Coalition over at Indie Rock Reviews.
From folk-indie greats Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, to dance-pop favorites Cobra Starship, musicians from all genres set up individual fundraising goals through an interactive website and work with fans to achieve them. Head over to the Invisible Children website to help your favorite artists reach their fundraising goal.
Money raised through The Musician Coalition will support an Early Warning Radio Network which links remote Central African communities through radio broadcasts. These broadcasts encourage child soldiers forced to fight in rebel leader Joseph Kony’s force, the Lord’s Resistance Army, to return home.
