Van Jones And Roc Nation Join Forces To Create The "We Rise" Tour
The CNN analyst took to Facebook Tuesday (June 13) to announce his 14-city American tour, which will feature athletes, entertainers and community leaders.
Van Jones merited a collective "oh word?" from the culture when it was announced the CNN analyst signed a management deal with Roc Nation. Now Jones is taking his activism on the road with the "We Rise" tour.
In collaboration with Roc Nation and powered by Jones' love army--which is a collective of people who have moved past their own frustration to band together in hopes of achieving equality--the nationwide tour will feature entertainers, athletes, community leaders and those on the front lines of resistance. Jones will reportedly also visit community centers as he travels across the country.
