Van Jones and Roc Nation are gearing to kick off their nationwide We Rise Tour which will bring an array of artists, athletes, thought leaders and local leaders to cities across the country this summer.
As previously reported, Van Jones joined Roc Nation as an exclusive management client.
Powered by #LoveArmy, the renowned activist, CNN commentator and two-time New York Times bestselling author will headline the tour promoted by Live Nation and 100% of net ticket proceeds will go to the Dream Corps initiatives and local charities.
We Rise focuses on our commonalities as opposed to our differences, exploring how to increase dialogue and engagement on both the local and national levels. Attendees have the opportunity to connect, ask questions and participate in various activations during the program.
During the We Rise tour, Van Jones and #LoveArmy will engage in each city, visiting local community centers, schools and organizations to spend time with our partners in social change on the ground. The most important work is happening on the front lines and Van is focused on enacting change in neighborhoods hardest hit, economically, promoting the ideology We Rise together.
