( ENSPIRE Community ) The Breakfast Club Promotes Social Justice #Change4Change Radiothon
The Breakfast Club recognizes the importance of equality for all regardless of socioeconomic status, race, gender or sexual orientation. They are partnering with amazing foundations like The Gathering for Justice, who shares the same values and goals–to eliminate racial and social inequalities and to end child incarceration. Today the morning show is encouraging its listeners in more than 75 syndicated markets to donate to these organizations making a difference in this country.
DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God will be broadcasting live from 6 am to midnight on the flagship station, urban contemporary “Power 105.1” WWPR New York featuring celebrity interviews, charity representatives and give out information on how local communities can be involved in these efforts.
The Gathering for Justice was founded in 2005 by Harry Belafonte after he witnessed a news report of a 5-year-old black girl being handcuffed and arrested in her classroom for “being unruly.” They are the fiscal sponsors of The Women’s March, Justice League NYC and Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Campaign.
“We truly value and appreciate the support of The Breakfast Club and their listeners. This on-air fundraiser will help The Gathering for Justice continue its work changing the landscape of the criminal justice system and advocating for racial justice in our communities” said Carmen Perez, The Gathering for Justice Executive Director.
We encourage everyone to give what they can to help this incredible organization carry out their mission.
