Join Your Neighbors Backyard (YNB) for a virtual concert to support Color of Change and racial justice!

YNB AT HOME: A CALL TO ACTION is a virtual concert, featuring artists from all over the country including Clark Beckham and India Carney. 100% of the donations will be donated to Color of Change and between each performance, there will be an action item on the screen for people to do in order to support the Black movement.

Your Neighbors Backyard is a 501c3 non profit based out of LA and NYC. YNB is a community of artists that put on live music shows to raise awareness and money for various causes. Though YNB cant host in-person shows due to COVID-19, the organization is still committed to doing their part in making the world a better place. Right now, YNB is committing efforts to sharing resources and action items on how we, as a community, can support and participate in the Black movement. In lieu of our in-person shows, please join us for our first YNB AT HOME: A CALL TO ACTION virtual concert series where you can enjoy from the comforts of your own home.

Defund the police, and invest in communities now!

For the past three months, our communities have been inundated with painful stories and images of Black people targeted, harassed, arrested, and killed by police and racist vigilantes. As Black people all across the country grapple with the aftermath of an unprecedented global pandemic, somehow Black people also have to figure how to stay alive while jogging, buying groceries, and yes -- even while sleeping.

If we do not take steps to deter public and private officials from supporting, investing, and protecting an unaccountable police force then we risk losing countless Black lives. That is why we have developed a platform of structural demands that will, over time, reduce the overall impact of policing in ways that are concrete and tangible. 

Invest in healthy communities not policing

Increase transparency and accountability for officers with records of misconduct

Do away with unfair protections for officers in police union contracts and Law Enforcement Officers’ ‘Bills of Rights’

Strengthen police use-of-force policies to protect human life and rights

End ‘broken windows’ policing and stop unnecessary prosecution of low-level offenses

Establish effective civilian oversight boards with investigative and subpoena powers

Respond to mental health crises with healthcare, not policing responses

Require independent investigations in all cases where police kill or seriously injure people

End the profit motive in policing
