On Friday, the City of Providence, R.I. recognized Panic! At The Disco’s Highest Hopes Foundations for their achievements in advocacy for human rights.
The recognition letter, addressed to frontman Brendon Urie, was signed by Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza and Councilwoman Carmen Castillo and recognized the foundation for their work with marginalized youth.
Over the band’s international tour, Urie has included many special giveaways and fundraising opportunities. $1 from each ticket sold on the Pray For The Wicked tour goes directly to the foundation.
On the band’s website, Urie says that foundation was “created to support the efforts of non-profit organizations that lead, develop, and advocate support for human rights. This is dedicated to all people + communities who are subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation + gender identity.”
