I was recently introduced to an organization called Peace By Piece. This organization uses music and art to bring people together for a cause. They focus on the three Es that affect all of our lives; education, economy and environment. Friday, March 1st they are hosting a show to focus on the first E, education. We wanted to make you aware of what they were doing and tell you how you could get involved.
The Majestic Theatre will be host To Emily Rose, Every Last Day, For Pete’s Sake, My Pal Val, and a showcase of women in hip-hop from The Foundation of the SE Gallery. They are aiming to raise awareness on education reform in Michigan under Governor Snyder. Many teachers are unhappy with the direction that the laws and the schools are going. Peace x Piece intends to raise awareness and connect people that feel the same.
The money raised from this event will go to fund further events that they plan to produce in the future. The show is $8 in advance and $10 at the door. This is your chance to learn more about Michigan's education laws, meet others and debate, and hear some good music. Doors are at 8 p.m.
