Rise Against has partnered with the It Gets Better Project, a non-profit focused on providing support and hope for LGBT kids and teens, with the release of their video for the song “Make It Stop (September's Children).” In a release, singer Tim McIlrath says:
“A number of events were the catalyst for the creation of Make It Stop, everything from the suicides in September 2010, to our own fans voicing their fears and insecurities from time to time,” says McIlrath. “I decided to create the song as a response, and when I discovered the It Gets Better campaign and [It Gets Better Project co-founder] Dan Savage's commitment to such an important and concise message, I was moved. I immediately felt that if our song is the road, then the It Gets Better project is the destination. I hope the synergy between the two can reach people and make a difference.”
