Hootie & the Blowfish have given the rights to use their iconic debut hit “Hold My Hand” for the theme music of the nation-wide event. VIEW:  “Hold My Hand Campaign” video


“The Hootie & the Blowfish song is a perfect way to introduce and to sustain an annual Mrs. Parks’ national hand holding campaign — making it the anthem for the movement,” says Ms. Elaine Steele, co-founder of RRPI. “We are so grateful to them for their generosity and love.”


Help spread Mrs. Parks’ messages of hope, unity, and love when you participate — document and share your hand holding experience on your favorite social channels and challenge your friends/followers to post their own video or image/photograph.
