RESIST MARCH

June 11, 2017

 "TRANSPARENCY, TAXES & TWEETS"

On April 18th, 2017, ARTISTS RISE UP LOS ANGELES produced a night of music and comedy, to benefit the Southern Poverty Law Center.     
Many talented artists took the stage, including the evening’s headliner, “the Liberal Redneck,” Trae Crowder.  Transparency, Taxes & Tweets celebrated the union of actors, comedians, musicians and dancers, and the laughter that emanated from the audience was a welcome respite from the current political climate.
