Van Jones is set to embark upon a nationwide tour that will offer a unique opportunity for activists on the front lines and the gatekeepers of culture to combine ideas and engage the public they hope to reach. The CNN commentator has partnered with Roc Nation for the WE RISE TOUR Power by #LoveArmy, which kicks off next month.

From the press release:

Van Jones & Roc Nation are proud to announce a groundbreaking partnership and nationwide event tour: WE RISE TOUR powered by #LoveArmy. WE RISE will bring an array of artists, athletes, thought leaders and local leaders to cities across the country this summer. Van Jones, a renowned activist, CNN commentator and two-time New York Times bestselling author will headline the tour promoted by Live Nation. 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.

The tour kicks off on July 26 in Los Angeles. The full listing of stops for the WE RISE tour can be seen below.
