Dear Friends and Supporters,
On April 1, 2020, we began our fundraiser for The Silence is Broken (SIB), and concluded at the end of February 2021 with a tribute to black history and music.
We invite all who haven’t watched The Silence is Broken concert and Dave Glasser Quintet double feature to please do so. All who have seen it, please share it with everyone. We need and appreciate your support.
Our work began with raising awareness on HIV and AIDS impact on black women. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says 43% of new HIV diagnoses are among African Americans, and 59% of new diagnoses among black women. However, among all populations, there is still much to discuss here.
As SIB grows, we realize it is not just about a singular issue, rather an anthem and call to defend and support causes; social disparities demand a resolution, a cure.
It is our firm belief that creativity with arts activism heals and creates resources for the world’s people, equity going farther to issues you care about. Your support and watching our concerts allows us to work, putting your dollars to issues close to your heart.
The Silence is Broken (SIB), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, uses the creative and performing arts to rally and inspire investment in communities; curing issues labeled unmanageable. We work with organizations and artists to make docu-concerts films.
Together, we can cure any social malady.
