Earlier this week, the music platform Bandcamp announced that it would donate its cut of all music and merch sales made today to the ACLU. The move came as a response to the immigration ban that went in effect over the weekend, which prompted a massive flood in donations to the civil rights organization.

So far, over two hundred artists and labels have joined Bandcamp in pledging some or all of their own proceeds from today's sales to the ACLU or other social justice organizations.

Here's a growing list of locals who are participating in today's give-a-thon. To add your label or band to this list, email or tweet us. In the meantime, happy spending!
