The virtual fundraiser will take place on Sunday, August 9th 1:00 PM EST

Looped, a virtual venue that connects fans to those who inspire them, will host the second #HAM4CHANGE fundraisers conceived and organized by members of the original cast of Hamilton to benefit organizations that are working to end systemic racism on Sunday, August 9 1:00 PM EST. The second event will be hosted by Okieriete Onaodowan with Daveed Diggs, Anthony Ramos, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Ariana DeBose, Ephraim Sykes, Carleigh Bettiol, Alysha Deslorieux, Hope Easterbrook, Elizabeth Judd Salinas, and Austin Smith.

Highlights from the August 1 fundraiser benefiting BEAM - Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective, LEAP - Law Enforcement Accountability Project, and When We All Vote can be seen below!



The third and final event will be Saturday, August 15 7:00-10:00 PM EST. In addition to these events, VIP packages are also available for purchase including a live on 1-on-1 performance or a virtual 1-on-1 meet and greet with cast members.

Moved by the social and civil unrest sparked by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others, the Hamilton cast came together with an ultimate goal of raising one million dollars for organizations working to end systemic racism. Each livestream fundraiser will include exclusive behind-the-scenes insight, trivia, interactive games, prizes, and never-before-seen original content from the original cast of Hamilton. Highlighted organizations include The African American Policy Forum, BEAM - Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective, Black AIDS Institute, Color of Change, Dance 4 Hope, Know Your Rights Camp, LEAP - Law Enforcement Accountability Project, Until Freedom, and When We All Vote.

"It's important we acknowledge the work we have yet to do as an arts community and a country. What made our show great wasn't us as individuals, but our collective, passionate voices as artists. We'd like to use the collective spotlight we have right now to illuminate organizations we work with as activists, and those smaller initiatives we know matter to the movement," says original Hamilton cast member Morgan Marcell.

Access to each livestream event is $10 per event and can be purchased at www.events.loopedlive.com/hamilton. This link also includes information regarding VIP virtual 1-on-1 meet and greets through the Looped app.
