The New York Civil Liberties Union will host its annual Broadway Stands Up for Freedom concert, We the People, October 15 at Town Hall.

The evening will include a host of artists performing original songs and classic Broadway tunes. Currently scheduled to entertain are Ada Westfall, Ari Afsar, Ariana DeBose, Eisa Davis, Erich Bergen, George Salazar, Kristolyn Lloyd, Shaina Taub, Stephanie J. Block, We McDonald, L Morgan Lee, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.

Tony winner Alan Cumming will be honored with the 2018 Freedom Award for his contributions as an artist and activist for human rights.

This year’s theme, We the People, was chosen to represent the ACLU and the NYCLU’s goal of bringing people together to take on the toughest civil liberties challenges of our time. Proceeds will benefit the mission of the NYCLU and ACLU to promote and protect the civil rights and liberties of all.

The NYCLU is also holding a song contest, inviting submissions for original songs that speak out against racism, hatred, and bigotry. The winner will receive a VIP ticket to the concert, a one-year membership to the ACLU and NYCLU, and a cash prize.
