Encore for Advocacy

Encore for Advocacy was launched in 2011 to highlight the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center’s music therapy program for abused children in Dallas County. Past performers lending their time and talent to the concert series have included Jimmy LaFave, Slaid Cleaves, Eliza Gilkyson, Terri Hendrix, Lloyd Maines, Ben Taylor, Emily Elbert, Jimmy Wayne, Patty Griffin, and Mavis Staples. 

Proceeds from Encore for Advocacy support DCAC’s work to improve the lives of abused children in Dallas County and to provide national leadership on child abuse issues. DCAC utilizes music therapy as a tool to enhance relaxation, help reduce post-traumatic stress, and create a transformative safe place that victims can tap into on their journey to healing.  When there are no words, music gives children a voice.
