Three Virtual Fundraisers
Organized by Members of the
Original Cast of Hamilton
Working To End Systemic Racism
The three livestream events and virtual meet & greets
will take place August 1, 9, and 15.
Looped, a virtual venue that connects fans to those who inspire them, will host #HAM4CHANGE, a series of fundraisers conceived and organized by members of the original cast of Hamilton to benefit organizations that are working to end systemic racism.
The livestream events will take place Saturday, August 1 1:00 - 4:00 PM EST; Sunday, August 9 1:00 - 4:00 PM EST; and Saturday, August 15 7:00-10:00 PM EST. In addition to these events, VIP packages are also available for purchase including a personal voicemail recording from Jonathan Groff, a live on 1-on-1 performance, or a virtual 1-on-1 meet and greet with cast members.
Moved by the social and civil unrest sparked by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others, the Hamilton cast came together with an ultimate goal of raising one million dollars for organizations working to end systemic racism. Each livestream fundraiser will include exclusive behind-the-scenes insight, trivia, interactive games, prizes, and never-before-seen original content from the original cast of Hamilton. Highlighted organizations include The African American Policy Forum, BEAM - Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective, Black AIDS Institute, Color of Change, Dance 4 Hope, Know Your Rights Camp, LEAP - Law Enforcement Accountability Project, Until Freedom, and When We All Vote.
“It’s important we acknowledge the work we have yet to do as an arts community and a country. What made our show great wasn’t us as individuals, but our collective, passionate voices as artists. We’d like to use the collective spotlight we have right now to illuminate organizations we work with as activists, and those smaller initiatives we know matter to the movement,” says original Hamilton cast member Morgan Marcell.
Access to each livestream event is $10 per event and can be purchased at www.events.loopedlive.com/hamilton. This link also includes information regarding VIP virtual 1-on-1 meet and greets through the Looped app.

The goal of LEAP is to elevate activist storytelling around police brutality and murder through funding short-term projects in film, theater, photography, fine art, music, poetry, literature, sculpture and dance. Change begins with the stories we tell each other about the police and Black people. This is our work. The fund is powered by advocates who believe in police transparency and visibility.
