Make a Change: Live Benefit Concert

**From jazz pop to alt country to R&B and hip hop, we’ve got something for everyone! Take a look at our amazing lineup of
performers and join us on June 15th!**

You are invited to the “Making a Change” Live Benefit Concert, a night of live music and storytelling as we raise awareness about human trafficking. Local Chicago artists will showcase their talents while motivating attendees to join the movement. Come ready to make a change in how you educate your peers and community about human trafficking. We hope you will leave with the desire to be conscious consumers and active participants in the movement to combat human trafficking in Illinois!

Proceeds from the benefit directly assist the Salvation Army STOP-IT program, which provides comprehensive supportive services to all survivors of sex and labor trafficking.

A special thanks to all the sponsors of this event: Goodman Theatre, Beat Kitchen, Allure Events and Design, Panera, MB Financial Bank, Navy Pier, Fab’rik Boutique, and Bucketfeet.
