Project AMPLIFI: San Francisco nonprofit brings musicians and causes together

Environmental attorney Leila Monroe was tired of the concept of benefit concerts. Hiring a music act to sell tickets and support the singular vision of one organization wasn’t enough of a conversation starter to come up with solutions to complicated problems that affect people in different ways. That’s what led the ocean conservation attorney to start Project AMPLIFI.

Introducing: Owl Paws

Bottom of the Hill hosting Sandy benefit tonight, 1/17/13, featuring Big Tree, Strange Vine, and more
