We are taking a moment to say “Hell yeah!” ‘cuz RPM has just hit some MAJOR effing milestones! In the past month, we have:
RPM is the lead nonprofit dedicated to helping artists be powerful allies for change. You can join us.
RPM has now brought over 100 musicians to the front lines of social and environmental justice! Together, these artists have generated over $1M and raised critical awareness for groups working on environment and social justice issues.
RPM has generated over $2 Million for other charities through our philanthropic advising program, called addRPM. Since 2010, RPM has advised almost two dozen artists and has supported hundreds of organizations.
The Waterfall Project, powered by RPM, is dedicated to supporting and promoting actions, big and small, for positive change in the world. With RPM’s help, MMJ will dedicate funds, established with portions of ticket sales from U.S. shows, and proceeds from special merch items and donations, to organizations working on the frontlines of the important issues.
2015 looks a lot like 1968. RPM recently helped get a great music video on #BlackSpring in “BALTIMORE" from the forthcoming Nina Simone tribute album out into the world. It is an amazing example of the power of music to reflect turbulent times.
