Lettuce, renowned for bringing new vitality to classic funk, is now breaking new ground on the social action front by taking three national non-profit organizations on the road for their Winter tour.
The American Civil Liberties Union, WhyHunger and HeadCount will have tables and volunteers at each concert, presenting action opportunities for fans to support each organization. Fans who complete three actions will be entered to win a poster signed by the band each night. HeadCount, a level partner, which registers voters and promotes democratic participation, is organizing all the non-profit activity.
"The issues associated with these three organizations are issues that we care deeply about," said Adam Deitch, Lettuce's drummer. "We're excited for our fans to not only have a good time at our shows, but also leave feeling that they are making an impact in the world."
The ACLU’s activation will focus on racial justice and ending mass incarceration. WhyHunger’s will be educating fans about food insecurity. Funding for the traveling installation is provided via a portion of each ticket sold on the tour donated to HeadCount. level is assisting across the project.
