Tonight, Strike Debt will officially launch the Rolling Jubilee with the People’s Bailout Variety Show And Telethon from Le Poison Rouge in New York City.

The event is a new take on the classic telethon, intended to raise money for the Rolling Jubilee. This project is designed to relieve the 99% of unnecessary and oppressive debt by fund raising to purchase debt around the country and abolishing it. The event features Janeane Garafalo, Lizz Winstead, Hari Kondabolu, David Rees, John Cameron Mitchell, Jeff Mangum, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Kool AD and Dapwell of Das Racist and many more. So far the Rolling Jubilee has raised $198,428 and counting which will abolish $3,973,386 of debt. This evening hopes to push that number even higher. The sold out event begins at 8pm tonight and will be livestreamed at RollingJubilee.org.
