Sakina's Restaurant star and former Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi hosted The New York Civil Liberties Union’s annual Broadway Stands Up for Freedom concert, We the People, October 15 at Town Hall.
The evening included a host of artists performing original songs and classic Broadway tunes. Performers included Ada Westfall, Arianna “Ari” Afsar, Ariana DeBose, Eisa Davis, Erich Bergen, George Salazar, Kristolyn Lloyd, Krysta Martinez, Shaina Taub, Stephanie J. Block, We McDonald, L Morgan Lee, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.
Tony winner Alan Cumming was honored with the 2018 Freedom Award for his contributions as an artist and activist for human rights.
This year’s theme, We the People, was chosen to represent the ACLU and the NYCLU’s goal of bringing people together to take on the toughest civil liberties challenges of our time. Proceeds benefit the mission of the NYCLU and ACLU to promote and protect the civil rights and liberties of all.
