For Today will also team up with several social justice organizations and sponsors to help raise money and awareness to help their cause. The mission statement of the Fight The Silence Tour is as follows: "There is no more revolutionary force on earth than a group of young people who are united and focused on one common goal. It's our heart's desire to provide a platform and a venue for the initiation of a scene-wide culture shift. The blind have lead the blind for too long now, so we issue this charge to all who will stand with us: It's time to change this system, not to fit in to it. You were born to fight the silence."
