This concert featured Aloe Black, Maya Jupiter, Quetzal Quartet, TaikoProject, Alice Bag, and East LA Taiko. The funds from the concert allowed Nikkei Progressives to provide many hundreds of backpacks to people and families released from detention, as well as provide huge donations to Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice, Our Lady of Soledad Migrant Shelter in Coachella, and Immigrant Defenders Law Center.
