Music Concerts for Social Change in Liberia

THANK YOU all for your wonderful support in the last months to keep our social movement in Liberia going!

As our friends, you already know that Takun J., Liberia’s Anti-Rape Ambassador, expresses his passion to end sexual violence against women through his songs. He lends his voice to break the silence and to question social attitudes that allow gender-motivated attacks to continue. Takun J. is convinced that his role as a musician is to affect change throughout his country, such as through his successful music video "Song for Hawa".

We are excited to share with you the latest news that we are entering the next phase in ending sexual violence in Liberia. Takun J. and other local artists will collaboratively take their music to its full potential to create social change. With your important contributions we will organize impactful concerts in Monrovia and across the country to reach a large audience with key social messages to protect the most vulnerable against sexual violence in the society: women and children. 

PCI Media Impact is also continuosly working on national partnerships with crucial stakeholders in Liberia in order to scale up our community mobilization activities. We want to infiltrate as many lives as possible with our socially conscious messages and plan to undertake schools visits and organize and host town hall meetings across Liberia. Our approach is strengthened through the support of the outstanding Grammy Award-winning artists Steve Jordan and Angelique Kidjo. These partnerships and our collective efforts will enable us to engage audiences in much needed conversations about gender equality and shift the social norms that underlie violence against women and children.

Stay tuned for more to come soon!

“As a musician, I have to use my voice to carry the message. And as a man, I have to stand up for the women and the children. Rape needs to end so our country can move forward.” - Takun J.
