Looking Out amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice. From neighborhood to nation, we help fund causes and organizations that often go unnoticed. Founded in 2008 by multiple Grammy winning artists Brandi Carlile, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, we band together with fans, nonprofits, and corporations to translate voices of song to voices of action.

    6 Ways You Can Help Your Community Respond to Coronavirus

    The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is upending daily life for millions of people worldwide.  More than 194,000 infections have been confirmed so far and more than 7,500 people have died, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, WHO warns.  As the health crisis deepens, other crises are emerging. Lost jobs, mounting debts, looming evictions, and social isolation are just some of the disruptions societies are facing.   “One thing that the pandemic is doing is laying bare the lack of baseline universal infrastructure that is meant for all of us,” Celina Su, the Marilyn J. Gittell Chair in Urban Studies at the City of New York Graduate Center, told Global Citizen. “The pandemic could end up exacerbating inequalities and deepening poverty, but it’s also a canary in the coal mine by showing us in really tragic ways where we could all end up if we’re not as lucky later on.”  “It shows us what we should be working toward always, not just in times of crisis,” she said, calling for universal health care, free child care, paid sick leave, unemployment benefits, and a stronger social safety net. Amid the growing crisis, communities are showing inspiring solidarity, helping the most vulnerable face challenges and building networks for long-term assistance.  “Right now, we’re supposed to be practicing social distancing, but how can we also practice social caring, social embracing, and social connection, all while physical distancing,” Su said. “What does that look like?” Here are six ways communities are stepping up to support people and how you can join the relief effort.
