Lift All Boats

from UPLIFT by Dave Douglas

Subscription exclusive


Two: Lift All Boats

This month’s piece is dedicated to the movement for wealth equality and fairness. This is a huge issue, as most are, with many moving pieces. Certainly, we need to urge our political leaders to consider economic fairness for all. There are many approaches to this problem, but it seems first we need to elect leaders who are interested in finding the solutions. This musical piece is a plea for thought and action towards wealth equality. I hope you’ll join me in supporting these organizations:

National Committee On Pay Equity

My Brother's Keeper Alliance

New York Common Pantry

I have found that Charity Navigator is a good way to find more information about causes and organizations.
