On November 1st, the New York arts community was shaken by the discovery of anti-Semitic graffiti on the walls of the Union Temple of Brooklyn, a historic synagogue in Prospect Heights. The evening’s event, a progressive discussion between comedian Ilana Glazer and Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, was canceled in concern for the safety of its attendees.

Hate speech is not welcome in New York. So Murmrr Theater, the Union Temple’s music venue, is responding with an evening of unity and love. All proceeds from the evening’s ticket sales, silent auction, and record raffle will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center, who monitor hate speech and fight for civil rights across America, and help pay for the temple’s much-needed additional security.


Buy tickets onsite for our Record Raffle, featuring boxes of signed vinyl and merch from the best indie music labels in the game, signed items by Ryuichi Sakamoto and John Carpenter, and more.

And bid onsite on our Silent Text Auction or click below to place your bids from anywhere in the world—even if you can’t make it to Love Speech! With guitars signed by Nile Rodgers, Jeff Tweedy, Courtney Barnett, and Pixies; a synthesizer signed by Ryuichi Sakamoto; a Twin Peaks deluxe boxset signed by David Lynch; and VIP tickets to Pitchfork Festival!
