ROCK YOUR HEART OUT, ANNUAL CONCERT & ART AUCTION, CELEBRATES HRI’S FORMER CLIENTS WHO HAVE SUCCESSFULLY FOUND SAFETY AND FREEDOM.
Now in its third year, RYHO pairs up teams of local artists and former HRI clients to create unique pieces for the silent auction, each of which will shed light on the immigrant journey to freedom. RYHO also presents a mini-documentary at the event, that chronicles the process of the artist+client pair creating their artwork. This artwork is auctioned off at RYHO, to benefit Human Rights Initiative of North Texas.
Each year, RYHO presents a musical act that is not only recognized for their art but for their social awareness as well. Our musical acts are as devoted to making our city better as we are! Their Music will blow your socks off and their Heart will melt yours.
All proceeds from RYHO are directed towards Human Rights Initiative of North Texas that provides 100% free legal and social services for vulnerable immigrants and refugees in the North Texas area. Because of HRI’s unique pro bono model, every dollar coming into the agency is multiplied by nearly five (5) times through the service donations of our volunteer attorneys. In 2017, volunteers donated over $4.2 Million in legal services to HRI clients!
