Concert Across America to End Gun Violence
A coalition of gun violence survivors and activists in Seattle have announced their participation in a national Concert Across America to End Gun Violence. On Sunday, September 25, 2016, we will remember the victims of America's gun violence epidemic with a series of live concerts from coast to coast. Two of several concerts held across the U.S., each connected via social media and online #ConcertAcrossAmerica to #EndGunViolence

THE COLUMBIA CITY THEATER on SUNDAY, September 25th, 2016 6 - 9 pm

The Columbia City Theater concert will feature artists— Wiscon, Radio Raheem and opened with grammy-nominated piano player Josh Rawlings and singer/survivor Courtney Weaver playing original music written about gun violence. At the age of 22, in the year of 2009 Courtney Weaver had over 95 musical performances and sang at five festivals in Northern California establishing herself as the resident blues belter. Just as her career was beginning to take off she was derailed when she was shot in the face and arm by her abusive boyfriend on January 15th 2010 in Arcata, CA. After moving back to her hometown of Seattle in January 2011 and 13 reconstructive surgeries later she is finally healed. Courtney has spent the last 18 months building her chops and performing in Seattle’s illustrious music scene, recording her debut EP Paper Tiger with Grammy-nominated pianist Josh Rawlings writing songs about gun violence and domestic violence, and founding her Survivor Voices Collective. There will be featured survivor speakers, a Jamaican food truck owned and operated by a survivor of gun violence, a blood mobile, live art, and much more at this festival style event —100% of the proceeds go to Concert Across America: Stop Handgun Violence and The Alliance for Gun Responsibility
