Rising Tide Climate Action Tour! (Wishlist)

Hey Everyone,
Evan Greer here from the Riot-Folk! Collective. I'm in Austin, TX about to embark on a six-month veggie-oil bus tour focused on Climate Justice. We're working on a shoestring budget and need all the help we can get! Below is a short description of the tour, and a wishlist of items that we need. If you can get us any of these things, please contact us! (Money is also a good thing...) Best way to get in touch is via phone: 978-852-6457, or e-mail: evan@riotfolk.org

Our basic tour route is posted on the Rising Tide Website. We'll more than likely be coming through your town soon!

Thanks for your support!
-Evan from Riot-Folk

The Climate Action Tour is a carnivalesque overthrow of popular notions of Climate Change. Wielding a theatrical arsenal of workshops, games, an Al Gore corporate puppet, Climate Change: The Folk-Punk Musical, and multimedia presentations, we will incite communities to act creatively in the face of impending crises. By partnering with community groups that are already fighting the root causes of climate change, we will strengthen the worldwide movement toward social and environmental justice.
