In Response to The Events at The Gorge: A Letter From CashorTrade

Published: July 26, 2018

Written By: Doug Krieger

Last weekend, we heard about the acts of violence committed against fans of color attending the Phish show at Gorge Amphitheater. We were saddened by this news, as Phish has always been a safe haven for fans to share in the groove.

Violence against any fan is unacceptable, and violence in the name of bigotry is abhorrent and has no place in our community. CashorTrade condemns both equally and fervently. We were founded on the idea of inclusivity. We uphold the belief that all fans-- regardless of race, religion, sexual preference, gender identity, or socioeconomic background-- are welcomed within the community. We vow to act as an ally to our members, should they feel threatened at any time.

Please take a moment and visit the GoFundMe pages of the guys and make a donation.
