Springfield rocks for peace

Malibu resident and singer Rick Springfield will perform a live concert in West Hollywood on March 19 to benefit Voices of Uganda, a nonprofit organization that uses theater, advocacy and film to raise awareness and encourage peace and stability in war-torn Northern Uganda.

Uganda has more than two decades of a brutal rebel war that has affected 900,000 children. For the past year, the Voices of Uganda team has participated in advocacy events, rallies, civic presentations, walk-a-thons, lobbying activities on Capitol Hill, and meetings with Senators and members of Congress to help bring their attention to the crisis.
