Brother Ali concert at CSS a success!

The CSS chapter of Amnesty International hosted Brother Ali on February 17. After months of hard work and preparation, we sold over 540 tickets to the show, raising about $7,000 for charity!

Everyone at the show seemed to really enjoy it. Brother Ali has a huge following, especially in this area, and Amnesty was super excited to bring this genre of music (Hip Hop) to CSS when it is largely overlooked here.

Some students that hadn’t heard of Brother Ali were convinced to buy a ticket and take a risk. I’ve heard feedback from many of them, and it’s all been positive! Even multiple faculty members attended the show!

I am so impressed by all the hard work our little student group put into this concert and how successful it really was. We have a lot of new members to Amnesty this year, and I was happy we were able to put on something so great together and that they could realize all our dedication.

The charity we decided to donate to is the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund, which is a  non-political, non-profit organization that was established in 1991 by concerned people in the U.S. to address the medical and humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian youths in the Middle East. It has since expanded to help suffering children from other Middle Eastern nations like Iraq, based only on their medical needs. The PCRF boasts that $1,000 in donation money is turned into approximately $53,000 worth of medical services. CSS Amnesty is so thankful for this oppportunity to assist a wonderful organization like the PCRF and actually make tangible progress in helping others.

Overall, the Brother Ali concert was an astounding success, and I am so proud and thankful for the students in our group.
