Bon Iver Concert Provides Support For Utah Domestic Violence Coalition

On September 4, 2019, Bon Iver will perform live at the Maverik Center, and he is bringing the 2 a Billion campaign to Utah, partnering with the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition to raise awareness, funding, and provide support for victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, and gender inequality.

“One of the biggest problems with domestic abuse is that people don’t talk about it. It’s insidious, stigmatized and hushed,” said Bon Iver Frontman Justin Vernon. “In Utah, one in three women will experience abuse in their lifetime and they are impacted by an unfathomable gender wage gap—almost 70% of what Utah men make. Utah women have a right to safety and gender equity, now.”

Touring with songs from their recent album, i,i, Bon Iver is excited about the performace at the Maverik Center and the opportunity to support Utah Domestic Violence Coalition.

“We are honored to partner on this campaign and we are incredibly grateful for Bon Iver’s commitment to bring attention to intentional acts and decisions that have disproportionately impacted women for decades,” said Jenn Oxborrow, executive director of Utah Domestic Violence Coalition.
