On Friday, August 13, 2021 DaBaby, Saweetie and Wyclef Jean will perform at Can’t Wait Live: A Concert for Jobs, Climate and Care with additional performances by Mavis Staples, Snow Tha Product and Beach Bunny in Philadelphia at the Mann.
The artists and organizers of the conference will call on Congress to pass a legislative package that makes meaningful investments in jobs, climate, care, housing, and immigration, and demand members of Congress stay in session until the package is passed.
Throughout the concert, artists, activists and other speakers will uplift a core message: Americans can’t wait for our communities to have a rightful path to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Coming off a year of historic suffering, speakers will highlight the urgency of the intersecting crises Americans face, including climate disasters and unemployment, and remind Democrats in Congress that voters expect them to deliver on their commitments to bold, popular policies that will tackle decades of disinvestment and improve the post-pandemic lives of working people.
The concert will be livestreamed on via the Working Families YouTube and Facebook pages. DJ sets by Philly legend DJ Jazzy Jeff and Philly star DJ Diamond Kuts and appearances by political figures and activists.
The concert is organized and sponsored by the Working Families Party, MoveOn, National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Green New Deal Network, Patriotic Millionaires and more. The coalition includes local Philadelphia organizations such as PA Working Families Party, 215 People’s Alliance, Unite Here Local 274, Abolitionist Law Center & Straight Ahead, Union of Musicians and Allied Workers – Philadelphia Chapter.
