Local activists, human rights organizations, artists and community groups have booked New York City-based Peace Poets (pictured) to perform a local benefit concert that will raise money for “those seeking justice for Tamir Rice and Tanisha Anderson, among others who have been killed by police officers around the country.” According to a press release, “The money will go toward local organizers' actions, training, bail fund and resource support to continue their work on the ground in Cleveland to end police brutality and systematic racism.” The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, at Cleveland State University. Suggested donation is $10.
