Inspired by the United Farm Workers house parties of the 60's and 70’s, The Living Rooms Across America Tour brought people together in a new and exciting way to stimulate conversation, build community and inspire people to get involved in local and national efforts to positively change our world.
The nationwide tour began on July 6, 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona and ended on election night, November 6, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. The tour visited 10 cities in 10 states in the 10 weeks leading up to the Presidential election. Tour stops included: Phoenix, AZ; New York City, NY; Charlotte, NC; Detroit, MI; Fairfield, IA; Jackson, MS; New Orleans, LA; Philadelphia, PA; Washington, D.C., and; Los Angeles, CA.
With memorable performances in front of thousands of people, including shows at the Democratic National Convention, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and at the annual Interdependence Day Conference, the tour provided community members with the tools to create greater awareness of important issues affecting us all and helped connect non-profit organizations nationally.
Tour sponsors included: Russell Simmons’ Global Grind website; HyperVocal; Rock the Vote; Off the Mat / YogaVotes; NationBuilder; the Holstee Project; 466/64 Fashion, and; Good Peoples. In addition, we worked with some of the most amazing non-profits, including: The David Lynch Foundation; Young People’s Project; Levitt Pavilion; F.O.K.U.S.; Interdependence Day; Youth Speak Collective; H.E.R.E. Local 11 and others.
