Join blind musicians from around the world on April 16th, 2022, at 2 p.m. Eastern time for a very special benefit concert for those who are blind impacted by the conflict in Ukraine.
The American Council of the Blind is proud to be a broadcast partner for the WBU global benefit concert “We’re With You,” which provides direct assistance for those in Ukraine who are blind and visually impaired.
The atrocities in Ukraine have turned life upside down for millions across the impacted region. The stories we have heard from those who are blind and visually impaired are extremely troubling. In response, voices from around the world are stepping up to sing a message of hope and unity for all those struggling during the conflict.
The online streaming platform Mushroom.FM has taken a lead role in organizing the broadcast, and both ACB and NFB are providing ways for individuals in the United States to donate to the cause. All proceeds will be sent directly to the World Blind Union (WBU) Unity Fund, which will provide disaster relief to those impacted by the current conflict taking place in Ukraine.
How to Listen
The ACB Media Network is one of many broadcast partners across the globe providing coverage of the event. That means in addition to the Mushroom.FM live feed, the concert will be carried over ACB Media Channel 4. You can listen via the ACBMedia.org player or ask your Alexa smart speaker to “Open ACB Media and play Media 4.”
