The election this November may be the most important of our lifetime, and Democracy Comes Alive aims to channel the power of music to make a critical impact on voter participation this year and promote awareness of Americans’ inalienable right to cast their vote. The event is the latest in a virtual series from the creators of Quarantine Comes Alive and Justice Comes Alive, which garnered over 200,000 viewers each and raised a combined $230,000 for various COVID-19 relief and social justice organizations.

In addition to the musical lineup, nonpartisan discussions between sets will focus on the history of voting rights and examine what it took for everyone—from the original founding fathers to women to people of color, and more—to gain the Constitutionally guaranteed right to vote. Democracy Comes Alive will also provide tips and information regarding best voting practices and the most effective ways to research representatives at a national, state, and local level.
