The New York Civil Liberties Union held its annual benefit concert at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. "Broadway Stands Up for Freedom," a celebratory event in honor of the recent Supreme Court victory for the freedom to marry, boatsed performances by some of Broadway’s finest.

In addition to some of Broadway’s hottest rising talent, the evening showcased the teenage winners of the NYCLU’s Freedom of Expression contest, which invites New York City public schools students to speak their minds on important civil liberties issues in their lives. Proceeds from the show benefit the NYCLU’s youth programs, including its work with LGBT teenagers; its Teen Activist Project, which engages New York City youth as organizers and peer educators on civil rights and civil liberties issues; and its work to stop overly aggressive policing and zero-tolerance discipline in the city’s public schools.
