All In WA: a concert for COVID-19 relief by presenting sponsor Amazon has been rescheduled to Wednesday, June 24.
Organizers have pushed back the date in recognition of the “pain and injustice the Black and African American community is facing,” and because they “want to give space for our community to focus on what matters most at the moment; acknowledging and addressing systemic racism and violence that dehumanizes Black people and families, and taking steps to build to a new reality.”
All In WA is a coalition of philanthropic, business, and community leaders who are working together to address the hardships that Washington communities are currently facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They will be harnessing their collective power to spread the message and match donations (Amazon will be matching all individual donations under $1 million to All In WA causes, up to a total of $25 million).
