Philando Castile — the St. Paul man who was killed by police during a traffic stop last week — was laid to rest Thursday in his hometown. And now the local music community is rallying to support his family with We Stand Together: A Fundraiser for Philando Castile

The benefit concert will go down at the Cedar Cultural Center and feature more than a dozen local music acts, plus spoken word, poetry, and dance. Proceeds will go to the Castile family, some of whom will be on hand to issue a brief statement. 

A $10 donation is recommended to attend the all-ages event.
