In the wake of the shocking decision by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe V. Wade, Rage Against the Machine are admirably donating half a million dollars to support reproductive rights organizations.

The funds were actually raised by fans who bought charity tickets to the band’s upcoming reunion shows, with the band now choosing to direct those funds to this timely cause.

The full statement that they posted to their Instagram reads as follows:

“We are disgusted by the repeal of Roe V. Wade and the devastating impact it will have on tens of millions of people. Over half of the country (26 states) is likely to ban or seriously restrict abortion very soon, if not immediately, which will have a disproportionate impact on poor, working class and undocumented BIPOC communities.

To date, our fans have raised $475,000.00 from the sale of our charity tickets at Alpine Valley and the United Center. We are donating that money to reproductive rights organizations in Wisconsin and Illinois. Like the many women who have organized sophisticated railroads of resistance to challenge these attacks on our collective reproductive freedom, we must continue to resist.”

The band’s much anticipated reunion tour has been rescheduled more times than we can remember these past few years due to the pandemic, but alas, the time is finally upon us.

You can find all of the most current reunion dates below, along with a short video of the band rehearsing for the jaunt.
