The festival—which is co-sponsored by a number of socially responsible businesses including Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Nature’s Path Organic, and Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, and numerous grassroots activist organizations such as People Against the NDAA (PANDA), Rock the Vote, March Against Monsanto, Thrive,, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, We Are Change, and many more—brings together various perspectives and represents the political diversity and basic values of the nation, which are not currently represented in Washington.

The purpose of the festival is to spread awareness of the many social and political injustices being permitted or committed by those in power. We are organizing and forming coalitions to take back control of government through democratic processes. The United We Stand festival celebrates the re-emergence of democracy at the state level where the people are fighting back against the corporatocracy, passing GMO labeling laws, legalizing hemp farming, and nullifying NDAA provisions.

With just a little more public support, these first steps, and bigger steps that follow, could go viral across the country.

Free & Equal is enabling multiple organizations and groups to find the strength in numbers to make the difference. In support of free and equal elections, the movement is providing the means by which honest candidates for Congress can get their messages to the public. In November 2014, the people will have more opportunities to vote for their first choice Representatives.

Musical headliners at UCLA include Public Enemy, founding members of Wu-Tang Clan, Immortal Technique, Brother Ali, The Siren, Paul Masvidal of Cynic, Tatiana Moroz, Rooftop Revolutionaries, A-Alikes, Luminaries, Kellee Maize, Jon Goodhue, Sounds of Solidarity, and more.
