Featuring music by The Bitteroots, Chris Stalcip and The Grange, & Spencer Smith, The Flint Hill Specials, Tedo Stone, & The District Attorneys.
POVERTY IS REAL is a non-profit organization that leverages great music to combat poverty in local communities. PIR takes their fundraising concerts on tour, celebrating music and supporting local organizations that fight poverty and homelessness.
Poverty is Real emerged from the idea that communities can take huge strides in alleviating need at a local level when they join forces. That concept – coupled with a love of music – gave rise to Poverty is Real.
And, even though the reality of poverty is sobering, Poverty is Real chooses to approach the issue with hope. When a city combines its resources and energy, incredible things can happen. Poverty is Real strives to ignite that drive and focus in local communities, combining hope with group action to generate a real and lasting impact.
