Vincent Eirene is a long time activist, author and defender of social justice. His activism has taken him to the swamps of New Orleans to help publicize the need for action post Hurricane Katrina to the tops of mountains in West Virginia to protest the mountain top removal coal mining by Massey Energy decimating the land and creating toxic waste which poisons the inhabitants. Here in Pittsburgh he has protested numerous wars through civil disobedience by fasting outside of Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University Campus and he also took part in Occupy Pittsburgh. This short list of his works should also include the fact that he ran a homeless shelter out of his own home for nearly 20 years. Ironically he has found himself after all of his good works teetering on the brink of homelessness himself. The artists scheduled to perform at this benefit believe in what he is trying to do and hope that through this concert we will raise some money to help him start over and re-create the Duncan and Porter House homeless shelter anew.
