Faculty artist Judah Adashi (MM ’02, DMA ’11, Composition) released a track for the Super Bowl.

No Refuge: For the Love of The Game was meant to be downloaded and played in lieu of the pre-game anthem, but is still available for purchase. All proceeds from this piece will go to Know Your Rights Camp: a free campaign for youth, fully funded by Kaepernick, to raise awareness about higher education, self-empowerment, and instruction on how to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios.
