Lauren Mayberry, CHVRCHES

What inspired you to get involved with The Ally Coalition?

I was aware of the work that these guys had being doing for a while and the other guys in the band weren’t in town initially so my friend Joey is going to play some cover song withs me. It seems like a really nice way to get a lot of people together and raise money for a thing that is really important, especially in the stressful political times in which we live.

Who has been an ally in your life?

In the kind of work that we do, you find who your friends are quite easily, and I’m lucky enough to have some long term friends from Home who are always ready to tell you when you’re being an asshole, and also always ready to tell you when someone else is being an asshole.

What’s a takeaway that you want people to have?

I think one of the most important things especially right now is that just because something doesn’t affect you directly doesn’t mean you don’t have to care about it, and more people talking about things and supporting each other is incredibly important and I think that something like this raises awareness and makes people hopefully feel less alone, but also hopefully galvanizes people to work together and make change.
