Jackson Browne and Alice Cooper , in partnership with Danny Zelisko, have put together an all-star line-up of musicians for a benefit concert at the Tucson Convention Center, who have donated the building for the event. Set for Thursday, March 10th at 6PM , the concert is a fundraiser for the non-profit Community Foundation for Southern Arizona , benefiting the newly established, Tucson-based Fund for Civility, Respect, and Understanding.
Performers on the bill include Jackson Browne, Alice Cooper, David Crosby & Graham Nash, Sam Moore, Nils Lofgren, Jerry Riopelle, Keb' Mo', Jennifer Warnes, Dar Williams, Ozomatli, Calexico, Roger Clyne, Joel Rafael, and Quiltman. It's quite the eclectic lineup, which works well with the event's goal to promote civility, respect and understanding.
The Fund for Civility, Respect, and Understanding was initially set up with contributions from the family of Ron Barber, Gabrielle Giffords' District Director, who was injured during the January 8th shootings in Tucson. The Fund's mission is to support individuals and families affected by the shootings, and to promote civility and respect in public discourse, schools, and the community. The Fund will work to increase public awareness of mental health symptoms, prevention, and treatment services as well.
