Let America Vote was created to fight back against proposals across the country that make it harder for eligible voters to exercise their constitutional right to cast a ballot. Whether it’s extreme identification requirements, questionable purges of voter rolls, voter intimidation, new and extreme voter registration processes, or anything that makes voting harder, Let America Vote will be there to lead the way against it.  Through online and grassroots organizing, an aggressive earned media strategy, and advertising, Let America Vote will play a crucial role among the existing network of organizations fighting for voting rights. Those who believe in preserving the right to vote must start winning the political argument. That is the mission of Let America Vote.

Prateek Poddar is a New England Music Award-nominated singer-songwriter from Boston, Massachusetts. He’s played on stages and at festivals across the United States, including the Kerrville Folk Festival and Club Passim. His most recent single "Emma," has been described as "stripped-down, honest heartbreak” (Vanyaland), and is available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.

The Salon on South is a series of fundraising concerts hosted in the home of Melrose residents Steven Jones and David Langer.  The Salon's mission is to raise money for social justice and other worthy causes through community and music. 100% of donations from patrons always goes to the organization chosen for the event. Since its inception in the spring of 2017, The Salon on South Ave has raised several thousand dollars for organizations including The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, The American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the United Negro College Fund, Planned Parenthood, and the International Rescue Committee.
