The 2011 Los Angeles Showcase benefits The Red Thread Movement (http://www.redthreadmovement.org) a student initiative partnering with Eternal Threads to combat sexual slavery in Nepal. Seven GoGirlsMusic Elite artists will perform at the Los Angeles Chapter Showcase and each artist will provide an auction item to help raise additional funds in our annual GGMF "Noisy Auction". Red Thread Bracelets will be available for sale to help raise additional funds. Our collective voice informs vast audiences about the horrors of sexual slavery.
Madalyn Sklar, founder of GoGirlsMusic.com, created GoGirlsMusicFest, a series of annual showcase events across the United States. The festival promotes independent women in music while supporting various charities which have included MusiCares, Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, American Liver Foundation, The Lynne Cohen Foundation for Ovarian Cancer Research, the Harvest Home, and more. Since 2000, well over 100 all volunteer run shows have taken place throughout the U.S.
ABOUT THE RED THREAD MOVEMENT
The Red Thread Movement is an initiative that unites voices against the human rights violation of sex trafficking. The signature Red Thread bracelet, which is handmade by an at-risk or rescued girl in Nepal, is a symbol of awareness that helps fund the continuous efforts to rehabilitate victims and eliminate trafficking. Red Thread Music recruits an array of talented musicians to use their voices to get audiences involved in the fight. It encourages people to break the silence by telling others about this injustice and wear freedom to show that they choose to take a stand against sexual slavery. We wear their freedom on our arms!
