Sia will headline an upcoming free concert in Cleveland in an effort to raise awareness and support for abortion rights.

The Sept. 10 concert, to be held at Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center, is one of a series of events that will take place simultaneously in Atlanta, Chicago, Miami and Philadelphia. The anchor event in Cleveland will be hosted by Comedy Central’s Jessica Williams and feature musical performances by Sia and Latin artist Natalia Lafourcade, as well as a comedy set from Ghostbusters and Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones.

The events are being organized by the the All Access Coalition, which comprises the ACLU, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, The Center for Reproductive Rights, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, Whole Woman’s Health and others.

“All Access is such an inclusive group that I’m proud to be a part of this,” Sia said in a statement. “We all need to stand together and be a part of creating the future we hope to see. There is so much support out there for an inclusive, equitable society that it’s time we showed our collective power.”
