The performance is a part of the fourth annual Amplify Decatur concert series — previously called the Poverty Is Real concert series — June 20-22 benefitting Decatur Cooperative Ministry (DCM). Last year’s Amplify Decatur event raised $14,500 for DCM through ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and a silent auction.
Amplify Decatur will also feature performances by Nashville-based indie rock sensation Those Darlins and Athens-based classic rock band Five Eight, as well as “My Hometown,” a Bruce Springsteen celebration night. Full details about the Amplify Decatur concert series is at AmplifyMyCommunity.org.
Founded in 1969, Decatur Cooperative Ministry alleviates and prevents homelessness in and around Decatur. Their programs include an emergency shelter for women and children, transitional housing for families, veterans’ assistance, and emergency relief for families on the verge of losing their homes. Their work has helped make DeKalb County a better place for over 40 years, and Amplify is honored to celebrate them. More information is available at DecaturCooperativeMinistry.org.
Amplify is a concert series that leverages the universal love of music to fight poverty and homelessness at the local level. Specifically, Amplify selects local-level charities combating poverty on the frontlines and host music concerts to celebrate their work and to raise funds for them. Amplify shows unite communities by inviting local businesses to sponsor the events and by increasing awareness. Most importantly, every dollar raised at Amplify concerts goes directly to the beneficiary. Amplify concerts are produced by Poverty Is Real, a Decatur, Georgia-based 501(c)(3) organization that works to educate communities about issues of homelessness. Learn more at AmplifyMyCommunity.org.
