No More Silence

On July 2nd, the duet is playing the Cameron House - the show's a fund raiser for No More Silence. No More Silence organizes events to call awareness to the missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls on this land. I can only think of that kind of violence as a recycling of the violence of settling here on Native land, so that's why we're playing it.

Anyway, here's a press release about the event sent to me by the organizer. It's a part of Pride. It'll be a good show I think.
Here's the line up:

One Hundred Dollar Duet
Faith Nolan
Kay Pettigrew
Jani Lauzon

Doors: 9pm

30 Artists Coming Together Across Ontario to Support Families of Murdered and Missing Aboriginal Women According to the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) there are
over 580 missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls across Canada.
This June, over 30 artists will be coming together to educate the public about this injustice and to raise funds toward a bursary in support of the educational pursuits of young women who have been affected by these murders and disappearances.

These events are organized for No More Silence by Liza Hancock, a fundraising
veteran with 30 years experience working with Canadian and International artists.
No More Silence is a Toronto-based network dedicated to ending these murders and
