PROJECTS AND ORGANIZATIONS
Local to Los Angeles: As a child of the foster-care system and adopted at 4 herself, today Alpert continues to work closely with foster-care and adoption organizations with her music. Her most recent project includes developing a music-arts-identity building program for foster-care youth, emancipated youth, and those that qualify with special needs and learning disabilities which was selected to receive a grant by NU-Arts for the program to be implemented around the Los Angeles Area.
On the Road: Inspired by a family members’s plight with Red Blood Cell Aplasia, Alpert devised a ‘save a life campaign’ tour across in states called Blood Driven performing at Blood Drives, Blood Centers, and children’s hospitals by day and local venues by night. This tour covered over 5000 miles reaching over 8000 people through live performances and social media participation in a two week period to raise awareness and encourage more people to donate to save a life. Chosen to be a spokesperson / performing artist for America’s Blood Centers new Speakers Bureau program ‘Conversations About Life,’ she continues to be an advocate for raising awareness and the value of donating blood.
