Earlier this afternoon (June 28) the frontman took to Facebook to share the news, saying:

“Every single day, all of you show me strength, courage and motivation, and as a result, it felt important to create something to show you that I see all of the wonderful things you’re doing out there in the world. With that being said, I want to join in on the fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Today I present to you the Highest Hopes Foundation, created to support the efforts of non-profit organizations that lead, develop, and advocate support for human rights.”

The organization was created in order to support those who are “subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation + gender identity.”

Panic! At The Disco also announced that they will be donating $1 from every ticket sold on the North American dates of the Pray For The Wicked Tour to the foundation.

Panic! At The Disco’s sixth studio album, Pray For The Wicked, is out now, via Fueled by Ramen/DCD2.

The band recently announced the second leg of their Pray For The Wicked Tour, which will see us praying for the wicked across North America well into 2019 with support from Two Feet.
