Vote for the BRC to get a Pepsi Refresh grant

The BRC is up for a $250K grant. Please vote for it!

That’s right.  The Black Rock Coalition’s proposal is in the running for a Pepsi Refresh grant of $250,000.  With this money, the BRC wants to produce a multi-city, multicultural alternative music festival.  You can read more about the proposal here.

Bottom line: The organization’s proposal needs to be in the top 2 vote-getters for the month of October in order to get the money. Please vote, and please vote every day (it’s allowed!).  A few ways to vote:

  1. Directly on the proposal page
  2. Text 103429 to “Pepsi” (73774)
  3. Vote via Facebook. On the proposal page, install the FB application.  Search for “black rock coalition” and then cast your vote.  Also share amongst your network
