The Estate of Peter Tosh is running a campaign via social media platforms. The 4 part campaign is under the banner of “Can’t Blame The Youth.”
1) Submissions: Fans from all over the world can submit their ideas to improve their communities.
2) Members of the Tosh family will choose finalists from the most realistic and impactful submissions
3) The Tosh estate will launch a crowdrise campaign with some partner artists to raise money to fund the project.
4) The project will be launched in partnership with a local agency with oversight instructions in place.
According to the estate, the campaign carries on Peter’s legacy, and is an amazing application of the message behind the song to put the power in the hands of the youth.
