estrojam 2005 will take place september 21st-24th at various venues
throughout chicago. confirmed artists have been posted on the schedule
page.

the estrojam music and culture festival is an annual 501c3 non-profit,
community-based event that features internationally acclaimed musicians
and artists of many mediums, emerging talent, educators, activists, and
community leaders in dozens of events, including concerts, workshops,
panels, and a film festival, presented at chicago's best venues.

each year, a portion of estrojam profits are donated to powerful women and
women's not-for-profit organizations related to the arts, education,
social change, human rights, non-violence and women's health. in 2005
estrojam will benefit the fight for social change through non-violent
methods by donating a portion of 2005 profits to the u.s. campaign for
burma, supporting imprisoned nobel peace prize winner aung san suu kyi and
the people of burma's non-violent struggle for freedom and democracy, as
well as the chicago abused women coalition.

aung san suu kyi (pronounced aung sawn sue chee) is one of the world's
most renowned freedom fighters and advocates of non-violence. burma is
ruled by one of the world's most brutal military regimes, which uses
torture, murder, rape and forced labor to maintain its power. over one
million burmese have fled the country as refugees. suu kyi has been
imprisoned by this regime, as well as put on house arrest multiple times,
over the past 15 years and is currently under house arrest indefinitely.
in 1988 this same regime killed up to 10,000 demonstrators for human
rights in burma  students, women, children, and others  in a matter of
months. suu kyi has won numerous international awards, including the nobel
peace prize, sakharov prize from the european parliament, united states
presidential medal of freedom, and jawaharlal nehru award from india. she
has called on people around the world to join the struggle for freedom in
burma, saying "please, use your liberty to promote ours." at present, aung
san suu kyi is the world's only imprisoned nobel peace prize recipient.
the u.s. campaign for burma works to promote freedom, democracy, and human
rights in burma.
