On June 17, a young White supremacist walked into a historic African-American Charleston church and shot and killed nine congregants. His hope was to start a race war, but Moore & Associates is proving he’s done the opposite.
The team at communications firm Moore & Associates shared the horror and outrage felt across the country and chose to do something to bring people together, providing support to those on the front lines. In honor of the victims of the Emanuel AME Church shooting in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, they are producing Stand Up For Charleston, a benefit comedy show that will support communities impacted by the awful attack and by racially motivated violence in the south.
Stand Up For Charleston will take place on Weds, July 29th, at the Bell House in Brooklyn, NY. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, or $25 at the door.
