Lettuce has partnered with the American Civil Liberties Union, HeadCount, and WhyHunger for their winter tour, which is slated to kick off in Atlanta on Wednesday, February 7th. All three organizations will have tables and volunteers at each upcoming concert, offering fans plenty of opportunities to take action and potentially win a poster signed by the band.

“The issues associated with these three organizations are issues that we care deeply about,” says Lettuce drummer Adam Deitch. “We’re excited for our fans to not only have a good time at our shows, but also leave feeling that they are making an impact in the world.”

All of the non-profit activity will be organized by HeadCount, a nonpartisan organization that registers voters and promotes civic engagement in the music scene. The group often organizes “participation rows” at festivals and major amphitheater shows, but Lettuce is one of the first band’s to bring the experience on the road to theaters and clubs. Level, a Denver-based philanthropic consulting firm, is also assisting with the project.

“This is a great opportunity for us to get out the vote in the most meaningful way,” said Andy Bernstein, HeadCount’s executive director. “By working with the ACLU and WhyHunger, we’re reminding people what’s at stake in each election and bringing issues to the forefront that are important to the band and their fans.”

“I believe in unity and equality,” added Lettuce bassist Jesus Coombs. “We humans are so much more powerful than we are trained to believe. We can do mighty and magnificent things when we are connected through love and respect.”

Lettuce will swing through much of the country on their upcoming tour, which wraps up with a two-night run the Madison Theater in Covington, KY on March 30th and 31st. A full list of tour dates can be found below. Tickets for the shows are available via the band’s website.
