You are Amazing!
Dec 17, 2020 —
I had no idea how this petition would work when I wrote it out!
I can honestly say:
- your signatures,
- support, and
- especially sharing the petition
create so much hope!
There's absolutely no reason Detroit has to lose this cultural touchstones while it moves forward. Together, IF WE KEEP BUILDING MOMENTUM, we can really takes these requests to Michigan and Amazon and, hopefully, take the Bandshell into the future along with us and future generations.
We're beginning to develop press too! Check out the 107.7 WRKR discussion about David Gifford's absolutely eye-opening piece (in the Detroit Metro Times) "Dear Amazon, before you bulldoze more than 80 years of Detroit music history, please read this." David's piece is linked in the petition and I shared the video from WRKR's piece so you can see the Bandshell for yourself!
You'd almost imagine a company earning so much from both Amazon Music and Prime Music apps might be open to preserving performances they might actively be reaping profits from. Especially since Jeff Bezos is worth $184.8 Billion!
Saving the Bandshell is not only possible, it's really a concrete way Amazon can give Back to Detroit culturally AND create jobs and good will!
