Sia and Leslie Jones have had tremendous years so far, spending time at the top of the charts and on this summer's silver screen respectively. Now, both icons are using their platforms to call for abortion access. 

Announced Monday, the stars are heading to Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center on Sept. 10 for a free concert organized by the All Access Coalition. 

The group, in conjunction with the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights, Whole Woman's Health and several other organizations, is putting on the event featuring Comedy Central's Jessica Williams, Jones, Sia and Latin singer Natalia Lafourcade, in an effort to raise awareness surrounding reproductive rights. 

"All Access is such an inclusive group that I'm proud to be a part of this," Sia said in a statement sent to Billboard. "We all need to stand together and be a part of creating the future we hope to see. There is so much support out there for an inclusive, equitable society that it's time we showed our collective power."

"Outside of Cleveland, more than 30 smaller events will be held around the country, ranging from dance parties to slam poetry contests," Billboard reported. "The events in Miami, Chicago, Atlanta and Philadelphia will be announced later this summer."

Tickets for the free upcoming show are available here
