Seth Glier benefit concert for The Rosenberg Fund for Children
This show is a benefit for The Rosenberg Fund for Children. Seth will donate all profits to the foundation.
The Rosenberg Fund for Children is a non-profit, public foundation that honors the resistance of its founder’s parents, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, who were swept up in one of the most controversial legal events in U.S. history. The Rosenbergs were left-wing activists who were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage in a highly tainted trial at the height of the McCarthy Era, for allegedly stealing the secret of the atomic bomb and providing it to the Soviet Union. The Rosenbergs’ sons were six and 10 years old when their parents were killed in 1953.
The RFC helps kids in the U.S. whose activist parents have been attacked because they’re working to combat racism, protest police brutality, preserve civil liberties, safeguard the environment, wage peace, and organize on behalf of immigrants, workers, prisoners, queer and trans people, and others whose lives are under threat. The Fund makes grants that pay for educational and emotional support services for these “children of resistance.” Many of the grant recipients use the funds for artistic or creative pursuits including dance, drama, fine art, and music.
Founded in 1990, in its history the Rosenberg Fund for Children has awarded more than $6 million to help thousands of children. The Fund has over 10,000 donor across the U.S., and decades of experience producing art-based benefit events. Artists have been important RFC allies since the organization’s inception, and the RFC celebrates the power of art to spark conversations and move people to action, while also creating beauty and community.
