Honor Prince with a Day of Remembrance

today's actionHonor Prince with a Day of Remembrance
The world lost a true legend last week when Prince passed away in his Minnesota home.

Prince broke any and all boundaries with his music. Using a mixture of Detroit-style funk, punk and heavy metal, he created a completely new sound that influenced hundreds of artists along the way. He was easily one of the greatest guitar players and produced hits for countless other musicians.

His influence didn't stop at his music. Prince was an outspoken activist who was never afraid to voice his opinions about the music industry, race, gender identity, and sexuality. Although he toured the world, he remained true to his roots in Minnesota, recording in his home and making impromptu appearances at local shows and venues.

Please join us and honor Prince with a day of remembrance. Urge Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton to declare a statewide day of remembrance in honor of Prince's contributions to American music and the state of Minnesota.
