LET'S get FR.EE (F*ck Racism. Elevate Equity)
Calling all creators, culture pushers, and rebels!
What would you give to live in a world where everyone is FR.EE?
FR.EE from judgment and bias...
FR.EE from discrimination and racism…
FR.EE from fear that the systemic problems of the past will always shape the future…
Here's the thing: freedom ain’t FR.EE. It never has been. And too many of us have been paying too steep a price for far too long. So, let's use the most powerful force we can to change things, creativity... the ability to touch hearts and minds through music, stories, and experiences.
Join them in the most diverse county in the country, Queens, NY. They’re taking their first step toward their mission to close the equity gap for Black, Brown, and Asian people in the entertainment industry while having a lot of FUN doing so!
They're kicking off their countdown to LETS get FR.EE Carnaval 2022 with a PARK JAM featuring Everyday People, The Originals, with special guests Goldlink, Mannie Fresh & more!
