MoveOn as a direct result of the tour. That's a 5% increase in our membership

"The excitement about this tour is fantastic, " adds Ellen Malcom of
ACT, which serves at the Vote for Change tour beneficiary. "This is
really going to help give us the resources to talk to millions of voters.
The artists have an ability to talk about the issues with groups of
voters who don't often listen to politicians. I think many swing voters
are going to start paying attention in a different way because artists
are speaking out," Malcom adds.

Vote For Change Tour
Conceived by a loose coalition of musicians four months ago, Vote
for Change is a multi-city, multi-artist tour that will include approximately
38 shows in 32 cities in 12 states over the course of 12 days. Vote
for Change artists hope to accomplish a single goal through the tour:
to get people to the polls on November 2nd to vote for a change. The
Vote for Change tour will be presented by MoveOn PAC, with all concert
proceeds benefiting the work of America Coming Together (ACT).
The Vote for Change tour came about as part of an informal conversation
among a handful of artists on how they could make a difference in this
year's elections and beyond. This idea has resulted in a first-of-its-kind
endeavor where Vote for Change participating artists will focus their
energies on the states where the elections are expected to be the closest.
All Vote for Change artists are donating their time and talent in support
of the tour.

mobilization effort in history to elect progressive candidates to federal,
