Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the leading national organization promoting church-state separation and individual freedom, is sponsoring Voices United. This is a nationwide series of grassroots house concerts and live shows that will defend and celebrate the vital principle of church-state separation.
The St. Louis concert will be at 8 p.m. on September 20 at the Ethical Society, and will feature Roy Zimmerman, an award-winning satirical singer-songwriter.
Roy Zimmerman sings satirical songs – original songs about class warfare, creationism, same-sex marriage, guns, marijuana, abstinence, Republicans (a lot of songs about Republicans), ignorance, war and greed.
In twelve albums over twenty years and on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Roy has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He’s a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.
Since the founding of America, singers, songwriters and performers have been a powerful force for social justice. Last year, Americans United for Separation of Church and State began Voices United for Separation of Church and State, a nationwide weekend of musical events to celebrate – and defend – the vital principle of church-state separation. Entertainers across the country will participate in house concerts and shows at larger venues to bring people together on behalf of our First Amendment freedoms. In September 2013, AU is reprising this important event with a great series of concerts and performances in cities throughout the U.S.
Nationwide, performances will feature comedians like Sarah Silverman and musicians such as Catie Curtis, Shelly Segal, and Dar Williams.
