Zedd presents “WELCOME!” fundraising concert for ACLU

Alexandre Trochut

Zedd fundraising concert “WELCOME!” is scheduled to take place on Monday, April 3 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. 

After President Donald Trump signed an executive order declaring a 90-day ban on anyone entering the United States from Somalia, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Syria, Libya, and Sudan, Zedd announced that he would divert all efforts into creating a charity concert in support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that succeed to put in pause the “#MuslimBan” executive order few days after it was signed.

With support from his team and likely dozens or hundreds of other people, such an event will be made a reality and today, Zedd confirmed the final lineup for WELCOME! which comes with a high-profile cast of talent, including Zedd himself but also includes Skrillex, Halsey, Macklemore, Mija, Daya, Incubus, and Imagine Dragons to name a few. Check out the poster below :

As an immigrant myself I feel the need to stand up against the tyranny that threatens our basic human rights,” said Zedd in a press release. “I’m thrilled to come together with Daya, Halsey, Imagine Dragons, Incubus, Macklemore, Skrillex, Tinashe and many more (to be announced soon) to help raise money for the ACLU, an organization that works daily to defend and preserve the rights guaranteed to us by the constitution.

Remember that all profits from the event will go to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a non-profit organization that states its mission is to “defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.” You can donate to ACLU by clicking here.
