25+ Artists and Labels Donating on Bandcamp Today


For Juneteenth, Bandcamp—being the great people that they are—are donating all of their cut of all sales made on their site today to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (and will continue to do so for every Juneteenth going forward).

So whichever purchase you make today from Bandcamp, you’re helping fight for racial justice and social change. With that in mind, here are over 25 different artists and labels that are donating their portion of today’s sales to organizations that support social justice initiatives.

All of the label’s cut of profits will be divided and given to The Okra Project and Black Trans Circle via Transgender Law Center.
