Pick up these 7 Irish albums on Bandcamp today, and support the ACLU

Unfortunately, it’s been pretty much impossible to avoid any mention of the recently inaugurated American president and his distaste for human rights. Fortunately, there’s plenty of people out there willing to fight to reinstate these rights, and the American Civil Liberties Union is one of those groups.

Just a quick read through of what the ACLU stands for, and you can see that they’ll be a thorn in the side of the current American government; they support same sex couples in marriage and adoption; ending discrimination against women, LGBT people and minorities; advocating for birth control and abortion rights; and separation of religion from state run entities.

With all of that being said, Bandcamp recently announced that all of the profits they make from albums sold on their site today will go to support the ACLU. This applies across both physical and digital downloads, so take your pick.
If any of the political viewpoints above align with yours, then think about picking up some of these Irish albums today.
