As president of Students for Peace and Change, Jaclyne Kartley believes in causes.
"I'm interested in making a difference in a nonviolent but vocal way, even through music," Kartley said.
On Saturday, Earth Jam, an all-day concert featuring area bands, took place at Hagerstown Community College's Alumni Amphitheater.
Sponsored by the newly formed Students for Peace and Change, the concert was held to show support for one of the group's causes - animal rights.
Proceeds from the concert would benefit PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), Kartley said.
"I had been wanting to sponsor an event like this," said Kartley, 19, an HCC student. "I have always been into animal rights and believe in the work PETA does. So I thought a fundraising concert would be a good idea."
