Overview of Idea

:

The Slants is the world's first and only all-Asian American dance rock band who travel around the country empowering youth, fighting bullying, and helping under served communities. Through workshops and presentations, they help students get involved with local organizations to create social change.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

The $5,000 will help create workshop materials, allow attendees of events to receive free music/literature, and allow the band to host events in cities across the U.S. We will work with other organizations such as LiNK Global, The Trevor Project, and APANO to champion a variety of great causes that participants can work with to make a lasting local impact. We will also appropriate part of the money to help fund other initiatives and support charities that reflect the mission.

The group is currently a 501(c)3 pending organization and will continue to establish a non-profit organization that uses arts to empower communities.
