All profits raised from Our First 100 Days will go directly to organizations working on the front lines of climate, women’s rights, immigration and fairness.
The project was started in conjunction with Secretly Group and 30 Songs, 30 Days, and aims to raise funds and awareness for organizations supporting causes that are under threat by the proposed policies of a Trump administration. This project is produced with the help of Revolutions Per Minute, an organization that provides strategy and support for artists making change.
The People’s Climate Movement is seizing the first 100 days of the Trump Administration as our own and putting all of our energy toward stopping Trump and Congress’ attacks on our climate, our communities, and our jobs and advance our vision of new American economy that protects our planet and people.
All Above All unites organizations and individuals to build support for lifting the bans that deny abortion coverage. Our vision is to restore public insurance coverage so that every woman, however much she makes, can get affordable, safe abortion care when she needs it.
Cosecha is a nonviolent movement fighting for the permanent protection, dignity and respect for all undocumented immigrants in the United States. We know our power lies in our people, not the political system that has failed us for decades. We are building towards a national boycott and general strike that will show the dependency of this country on the labor and consumer power of the immigrant community.
Southerners On New Ground (SONG) is a regional Queer Liberation organization made up of people of color, immigrants, undocumented people, people with disabilities, working class and rural and small town, LGBTQ people in the South. We believe that we are bound together by a shared desire for ourselves, each other, and our communities to survive and thrive. We believe that Community Organizing is the best way for us to build collective power and transform the South. Out of this belief we are committed to building freedom movements rooted in southern traditions like community organizing, political education, storytelling, music, breaking bread, resistance, humor, performance, critical thinking, and celebration.
Hoosier Action is a new project focused on building the political power of working families and individuals in the state of Indiana. Hoosier Action emphasizes robust community organizing, where campaigns are built around economic and social issues that impact people and communities across the region. Hoosier Action will work to increase voter participation, lift people out of poverty, and build a new political voice for the residents of Indiana who have been left on the margins.
Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) is a nonprofit agency that provides artists with strategy and support for their activism and philanthropy. RPM was founded in 2005 with an understanding that while all artists have an unparalleled ability to effect positive change in the world, engaged and well-resourced artists do it better. Artists’ deep and enduring connection with their audiences gives them extraordinary power to shift public opinion; raise funds and awareness for worthy causes; and inspire energy and enthusiasm toward action. RPM engages and inspires the artists so that when they act, they are doing so in the most strategic ways possible — ways that amplify the existing messages and strategies of movements and generate vital resources. We believe smart strategies and steady support help artists realize their full potential as powerful agents of change.
