New York, New York – (November 10, 2022) In light of recent events impacting reproductive rights in the United States, Primary Wave Music and non-profit NOISE FOR NOW announced today the launch of their charity auction to benefit Reproductive Justice. Bidding is open NOW and will conclude on November 17, 2022, at 4:00pm PST/7:00pm EST.

Auction items will remain available throughout the duration of the event and granted to the highest bidder following its close.
“Over the last few years, our DEI Task Force has strived to promote growth and change by partnering with non-profits that align with our company’s core values. In the wake of the Supreme Court ruling earlier this year, many of us felt a sense of powerlessness and an urgency for change. This collective desire to make a difference ultimately led to our team’s exciting partnership with NOISE FOR NOW. After reaching out to our network of artists and allies to join us, we are beyond thrilled with the amazing response we received to support this cause!” says Derek Pierce of Primary Wave Music’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force.
This monumental event comes as one of latest projects streamlined by Primary Wave Music’s growing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force. First started in 2020, the team has since made efforts to further educate on and support causes that impact not only the music industry, but those across the country. With the help of NOISE FOR NOW, a major player in connecting the entertainment industry with grassroots organizations, the partnership hopes to bring further awareness and funding to vital human rights organizations.
ABOUT NOISE FOR NOW
NOISE FOR NOW is a national initiative that enables artists and entertainers to connect with and financially support grassroots organizations that work in the field of Reproductive Justice, including abortion access. NOISE FOR NOW is the link between touring musicians, progressive promoters, athletes, artists and local reproductive rights organizations in cities across the country.
NOISE FOR NOW works closely with Abortion Care Network to support Independent Abortion Clinics throughout the US. Independent abortion clinics provide the majority of abortion care in the US, yet often lack the resources and name recognition necessary to keep their doors open and fight back against unjust laws.
