Previous Concerts for Civility

Inaugural Concert for Civility, March 10, 2011azbenefit

The Fund for Civility got its seed money from generous community donations and a huge concert event held on March 10, 2011, just two months after the January 8th shooting in Tucson that sparked the creation of the Fund. The Barber family worked with Jackson Browne’s management team to put together a star-studded event that gave the community a chance to come together and enjoy the healing power of music. The line-up spectacular and the music a powerful reminder of how precious life is.
