Sat., Sep. 29 Voices United Concert to promote Americans United for the Separation of Church and State

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 29, and will feature Jan Marra, an award-winning folk singer.

Nationwide, performances will feature celebrity comedians Sarah Silverman and Russell Brand, as well as musicians such as Catie Curtis, Janis Ian, John McCutcheon, Mary Gauthier, Guy Davis, Roy Zimmerman and Natalia Zukerman.

Said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, Americans United executive director, “We are thrilled that such a diverse array of singers and entertainers has stepped forward to focus attention on the bedrock American values of fairness, equality and justice for all. They are all truly ‘voices united for separation of church and state.'”

“This is a unique but timely event,” Lynn continued. “With a major national election approaching, we are sending a clear message: religion and government must be kept separate.”
