Parties 4 Peace presents Think 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.

Peace Boat is an international non-profit and non-governmental organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment through educational programs, cooperative projects and advocacy activities on global peace voyages. As part of our wider peace building activities, Peace Boat has carried out emergency relief operations for the past 15 years, delivering emergency assistance and raising funds, as well as coordinating the dispatch of experienced logisticians, interpreters and volunteer teams to affected areas all over the world.

DONATION $ *all of the proceeds were donated to Peace Boat US and the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, both non-profit organizations with 501c(3) status. Our goal is to help to support the local community and make a global impact.

INTRODUCING THE ARTISTS BEHIND RED DOT RELIEF 

JAY HAZE & SETH TROXLER

Jay Haze
American DJ-producer Jay Haze was probably destined for a career in the Peace Corps, if he hadn't found his musical calling first. After all, he's been an active charity worker since his teens. And he certainly didn't allow his international success as a globetrotting DJ to get in the way of being a dedicated philanthropist. After witnessing third-world poverty firsthand in Lima, Peru, Haze teamed up with the Tuning Spork label to organize a series of international charity events called Toys & Needs. But his humanitarian efforts did not stop there. Haze's DJS4DRC campaign in 2009 helped women and children affected by rape and violence in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, raising a whopping €100,000 through Haze's donation of all profits from his Fabric 47 mix CD. Talk about giving back! 

Seth Troxler
DJ-producer Seth Troxler may be best known for his late-night techno party style and irreverently humorous DJ persona. But in 2011, he also proved that he's got a heart of gold. Following the catastrophic March earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, Troxler launched Red Dot Relief (later joining forces with Jay Haze and the Tuning Spork Efforts Team), asking the dance music community to help raise money for and spread awareness of the disaster. Troxler's relationship to Japan is personal, as his fiancee's family was affected. But he knew his influence as an internationally celebrated DJ could get thousands of people involved in helping the cause, and Red Dot Relief has received widespread support across the international EDM community.
