BRCSJ is an educational enclave and safe-space for LGBTQ community

School of Rock Princeton, an afterschool music program for kids and teens made a donation of $350 to the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice in Princeton. The donation represents a portion of the proceeds that the School generated at its grand opening on September 18.

“The inclusiveness, passion, and righteous social justice mission of the Rustin Center represents a perfect synergy with School of Rock Princeton,” says Annie Morton, co-owner of the School. “We’re thrilled to support their important work, and we look forward to collaborating with them on future events and projects.”

Founded in 2018, the Bayard Rustin Center is an educational enclave and safe-space for LGBTQ youths, intersectional families, and marginalized people in the Princeton area ofCentral New Jersey.

“What a wonderful and affirming space School of Rock Princeton has built. We were equally honored to share their grand opening with them,” said the Rustin Center’s Chief Activist Robt Seda-Schreiber. “The School’s donation will help us on our quixotic quest to find a new Headquarters, since we lost our dedicated safe-space.”

Along with being a recipient of the School’s donation, the Rustin Center was also represented by Seda-Schreiber at its grand opening. He performed, with updated lyrics, a spirited rendition of David Bowie’s hit “Rebel Rebel.” Seda-Schreiber was backed by some of the School’s top teen musicians.
