HELP SAVE THE PEOPLES’ VOICE CAFE! Since November 1979, the collectively run nonprofit Peoples’ Voice Cafe in New York City has presented weekly performances featuring a diversity of artists and musical styles. In addition to being quality performers, Peoples’ Voice Cafe artists have a social conscience and want to make the world a better place. Over the years, these artists have included Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Si Kahn, Roberta Flack, Odetta, David Amram, and Kim and Reggie Harris, as well as many other less-known but enormously talented people.

On or about September 29, 2022, the Peoples’ Voice Cafe bank account was invaded through an online security breach. As a result, thieves stole $24,000, which is not recoverable. This is most of its funds, and the small amount remaining is already being used to pay current expenses. We have filed a police report about it and are seeking legal guidance. We are struggling to meet our monthly expenses, and without significant help from others, the Peoples’ Voice Cafe would have to close.

We have launched the GoFundMe campaign in order to survive. After more than four decades of providing a venue for artists who have something important to say and the talent with which to say it, the Peoples’ Voice Cafe is now in danger. Can you donate to help save Peoples' Voice Cafe?

Your help and support are very much appreciated to keep social activist music, consciousness, community spirit and action alive so that we can continue to say, "If it's Saturday night, it must be the Peoples' Voice Cafe!"
