MPress Records recording artist Grace Pettis has released a powerful new single, "White Noise". 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Color Of Change, which "leads campaigns that build real power for Black communities" (including their current fight for justice for Breonna Taylor). It is currently available exclusively via Noisetrade as a donation-based download.
Grace explains, "Justice for Breonna Taylor. Black lives matter. Say their names. This is the only 'artist’s statement' I’ll be releasing. This is not about me, the artist. Or even about the song itself. This song was written for Breonna Taylor and black victims of police brutality and systemic racism. This song was written to amplify their voices, not my own. Give what you can and go VOTE."
Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.
They help people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by 1.7 million members, they move decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America.
Their campaigns and initiatives win changes that matter. By designing strategies powerful enough to fight racism and injustice—in politics and culture, in the work place and the economy, in criminal justice and community life, and wherever they exist—they are changing both the written and unwritten rules of society. They mobilize their members to end practices and systems that unfairly hold Black people back, and champion solutions that move us all forward.
Until justice is real.
