Five bands will perform at Rockin' the Rights at Cat’s Cradle on Saturday in order to raise money for the American Civil Liberties Union.
The money will go to further the ACLU's mission of protecting the civil rights and liberties of all people. Their efforts include defending the discriminated, lobbying, litigating in courts and trying to silence suppressors of free speech.
The goal of the ACLU is not only to protect, but also to advance the rights of all North Carolinians, said Molly Rivera, the communications associate of the ACLU's North Carolina branch.
“We are here to defend the Constitution and the laws of our state and our country, and through that, we work on a lot of different issues,” Rivera stated. "Including everything from voting rights to LGBTQ equality to reproductive freedom to criminal justice reform.”
The benefit concert starts at 7 p.m., and while admission is free, donations are encouraged. The lineup will consist of The Whiskey Honeys, Too Much Fun, Butcher and the Tin Man, Cyril Lance Band and The Allen Boys.
