In observance of this solemn day, Michael Franti and Spearhead are calling on all citizens of the world to join in our LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT Contest! Tell him what you really feel!!!

All submissions are welcome as poems letters or songs. The only requirements are that they are one page or less and that the letters offer some form of constructive criticism (What would you do?).
Three winners will be selected for each of the three Spearhead shows on President’s Day Weekend. Two at the Warfield in San Francisco on the 16th and 17th and one at the Montbleu Resort Showroom in Lake Tahoe on the 18th.
