Globally, Act Locally”
at the MOVEMENT Festival in Detroit
Parties 4 Peace joined the Movement Festival in support of the city of Detroit, and in recognition of the tremendous universal need for relief that resulted from the 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster in Japan.
"People who are in a position to help need to understand that we have to. This world is all of us together,
we are all human, we need to look after each other." - Seth Troxler
"Music is a force that can’t be stopped, and should be shared. Music is cultural information." - Jay Haze
"Think globally, act locally" urges people to consider the well-being of the entire planet
while taking action in their own communities and cities.
HOW THE DANCE MUSIC COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTED:
Artists and agents donated a percentage of their Detroit fees to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen.
Promoters and event producers asked for a portion of proceeds raised to be contributed to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen and for permission for Parties 4 Peace to facilitate on-site Red Dot Relief collection at parties.
Festival attendees joined our team of people collecting donations as well as to make financial contributions to both organizations.
ABOUT OUR CAUSES::
The Capuchin Soup Kitchen provides the people of metro Detroit with a wide array of services including a meal program, an urban farm that promotes sustainability, children’s programs and substance abuse services. As an organization that receives no government subsidies, they rely entirely on the generosity of benefactors to serve the people of their neighborhood.
Red Dot Relief is a group of artists and supporters of the dance music community asking for a call to action to raise money and spread awareness of the disaster stricken regions of Japan. Spearheaded by Visionquest (Seth Troxler) & friends, alongside Crosstown Rebels and the Tuning Spork Efforts Team, they're trying to influence others to follow and donate whatever they can to the disaster fund.
Parties 4 Peace was founded in the year 2002 in Tokyo with the mission to promote a culture of peace through dance and music. We invite artists and promoters to volunteer their time and talent for a good cause.
