Each month through July 2022, Lafayette, Indiana rock band June IND is donating music sales and streams through its #philanthrocky music for a cause initiative to a Greater Lafayette area organization addressing issues related to arts access, diversity, education, the environment, equality, homelessness, human rights, hunger or social justice. Beneficiaries will be identified by causes linked to various awareness months throughout the year.
Aligning with Universal Human Rights Month, the beneficiary for December 2021 is the Greater Lafayette Legal Defense (GLLD) Fund. The GLLD Fund was created in response to public awareness of the racial disparities documented throughout the criminal legal system. The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Philado Castile and many others by police officers have fueled individuals across the nation to take action to support communities most impacted by policing. For more information about the GLLD Fund, visit https://chuffed.org/project/glldfund.

About June IND Two shots of optimism are most welcome today, especially from Lafayette, Indiana rock duo June IND.
