Hats off to The National: the band announced this morning that they’ll donate all proceeds from their online store (retroactive from Nov. 25 onward) to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, the Southern Poverty Law Center and Democracy Now! Sounds like it’s time to finally invest in that National t-shirt you’ve always wanted.
“Civil Liberties are not set in stone,” the band wrote in a note (embedded below) shared to Twitter. “It’s more important than ever to take action to ensure that none of our voices are silenced and that none of our liberties are obstructed.”
