At the end of January, the digital sales and streaming platform Bandcamp announced that, for one day, it would donate its entire cut of music and merchandise sales to the American Civil Liberties Union. That February 3 campaign was a raging success, raising more than $100,000 for the civil rights organization.
This week, the site announced that it would hold a similar drive
for the Transgender Law Center, a nonprofit that advocates for trans rights through law and policy. The campaign runs through midnight Pacific time today (so, 3 a.m. Eastern Standard Time).
Below are the local bands and labels who are donating their own portions of sales to the Transgender Law Center today. Spend some money and help do some good in the process.
