In early October, Paramore will kick off a 12-date tour coursing through North America, with one stop in Toronto, Ontario. Today (July 21), the band announced that a portion of proceeds from those ticket sales will be donated to organizations that provide reproductive care and abortion services. You can find their full statement below.

“We are outraged by the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, ending the federal constitutional right to abortion, affecting millions across the country,” the band wrote in an Instagram post. Their statement continued:

$1 of every ticket sold for our US Fall 2022 shows will be donated to ARC Southeast, an organization that provides funding and logistical support to ensure Southerners receive safe and compassionate reproductive care including abortion services.

$1 of every ticket sold for our Bonner Springs, Kansas show will be donated to Kansas Abortion Fund, an organization that provides assistance to Kansans in need of financial support to obtain abortion services.

Paramore also wrote that $1 of every ticket sold for their Toronto concert will be donated to Women’s Shelters Canada, an organization that works with over 600 women’s shelters across Canada, supporting women and children fleeing violence.

“We look forward to supporting more causes on future tours,” Paramore wrote in the conclusion of their post. “Thank you to those of you coming to these start up dates.”

A number of artists have spoken out about the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, including Lizzo, Phoebe Bridgers, Rage Against the Machine, and others.
