sia and leslie jones to headline abortion rights concert
Sia is set to headline All Access, an abortion rights concert at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland on September 10, the anchor event for more than 30 simultaneous concerts across the US being held to raise awareness and support for abortion rights. Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones will also perform, showing off another of her many talents (great actor, top Olympics commentator), as an acclaimed comedian.
"Girls just wanna… have access to their constitutional rights" is the excellent slogan of organizers All Access Coalition, which comprises the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the Center for Reproductive Rights, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, Whole Woman's Health, and more.
"All Access is such an inclusive group that I'm proud to be a part of this," Sia says in a statement, Billboard reports. "We all need to stand together and be a part of creating the future we hope to see. There is so much support out there for an inclusive, equitable society that it's time we showed our collective power."
Tickets for the Cleveland concert are free and available at allaccess2016.com, and the concert will also be live-streamed on the All Access YouTube channel.
