ABOUT BY DEGREES: A Letter From Songwriter Mark Erelli

If you’re like me, you’ve witnessed the uniquely American tragedy of mass shootings with a mixture of anger and helplessness. Though perhaps too soon to tell, recent student-led activism may prove to be an inflection point in the battle against gun violence. Change is long overdue, but thanks to the leadership of our kids and events like the March for Our Lives, it feels closer than it has in a long time.

A few years ago, I wrote a song called “By Degrees” that addresses the toll that living with gun violence takes on us, both personally and collectively. We have now partnered with Gabby Giffords' gun violence prevention organization Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence to release an official version, which also features the incredible talents of Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, Lori McKenna, Anais Mitchell, and Josh Ritter. All proceeds go to the Giffords organization, which will support their work to save lives from gun violence as they shift culture, challenge injustice, and change policy.

With respect,
