BRENDON URIE LAUNCHES NON-PROFIT HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANISATION

Brendon Urie has launched a non-profit organisation called the ‘Highest Hopes Foundation’ to help support Human Rights.

Every single day, all of you show me strength, courage and motivation, and as a result, it felt important to create something to show you that I see all of the wonderful things you’re doing out there in the world. With that being said, I want to join in on the fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Today I present to you the Highest Hopes Foundation, created to support the efforts of non-profit organizations that lead, develop, and advocate support for human rights.”

The organization was created in order to support those who are “subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation + gender identity.”

Panic! At The Disco also announced that they will be donating $1 from every ticket sold on the North American dates of the Pray For The Wicked Tour to the foundation.

Just when we thought he couldn’t do more, Brendon Urie has also announced he will be donating $1 million to his partnering organisation GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) helping to create LGBTQ+ clubs across schools.

For years my fans have inspired me with their determination and creativity as they have created a safe and inclusive community. I felt the time had come for me to join them boldly, to bring that energy and power to bear on the huge challenges facing our whole society.”
