"We vote everyday with our dollars, tweets and opinions. There's one day every four years when we get to make our voice heard as a generation. No matter what your party, your dreams or complaints are, get off your butt, raise your voice and VOTE!"

Internationally-renowned musician, filmmaker, human rights worker and speaker, Michael Franti is a leading voice in social justice, the peace movement, prison reform and advocate for independent media. San Francisco-based Franti as described in Rolling Stone is “one of this generation's most prolific, staunchest and outspoken poets of lyrical conscience."

In the mid-Nineties, Franti first formed Spearhead, and increasingly in recent years, he’s found his own voice musically and his own organic brand of popular success. Franti and Spearhead’s album, 2008’s All Rebel Rockers -- recorded in Jamaica with legendary producers and players Sly & Robbie – became the biggest hit of Franti’s career, hitting the Top 40 on the Billboard 200, and yielded his biggest hit, the Top 20 “Say Hey (I Love You)."
