HeadCount wrapped up their 6th Participation Row at Okeechobee Music Festival this month, and they were active registering fans to vote and taking action with Florida nonprofits.
HeadCount volunteers helped more than 1,500 fans make sure they are ready to Vote Local this year, and festival goers took more than 6,000 positive actions with local nonprofits.
Participation Row was the activism village where HeadCount encouraged festival attendees to register to vote and learn about seven local nonprofits. To draw in the crowds, the group gave away countless Tony’s Chocolonely chocolates and one lucky winner took home a custom D’Angelico guitar that was signed by festival artists.
HeadCount is a non-partisan organization that uses the power of music to register voters and promote participation in democracy. The group reaches young people and music fans where they already are – at concerts, festivals, community events and online – to inform and empower.
