MILCK Won’t Go Back: Singer and songwriter MILCK has teamed up with musicians BIIANCO, Autumn Rowe and Ani DiFranco for vital protest song “We Won’t Go Back” — a natural response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe Vs. Wade. Half of the money raised will be donated to Planned Parenthood and Yellow Hammer Fund.
According to the press release, “The story of ‘We Won’t Go Back’ began in DC the day after the Politico leak regarding the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade, which would eliminate the constitutional right to abortion. MILCK participated in a rally where hundreds of people gathered in protest and the cathartic, powerful chant ‘We won’t go back!’ became the resounding anthem.”
“The process of creating this song embodies one of my favorite quotes from Maxine Hong Kingston: ‘In times of destruction, create something’,” said MILCK. “I hope this song gives people a sense of energy to continue fighting the good fight. I hope that it helps people process their rage, their determination, and their sassiness.”
MILCK Won’t Go Back: “We Won’t Go Back” is available now on all streaming platforms.
““We Won’t Go Back” is a full-circle moment for MILCK, who five years ago became known around the globe for the viral performance of her song “Quiet” during the Women’s March. “Quiet” became the unofficial anthem of the movement, was named Billboard’s No.1 Protest Song, and was selected for NPR’s American Anthem Series. MILCK has since established The Somebody’s Beloved Fund, to use her music to generate resources for ten grassroots beneficiaries that build power around racial justice, feminism, LGBTQIA+ rights, criminal justice reform and mental health.”
