- Advocates in Action
Alright, folks. The time has come and we want to get this party started right. After months of planning, the Resolve Tour is hitting the road. This March, April and May we’ll be traveling to venues large and small to showcase the amazing talents of Koji, an artist and activist from Harrisburg, PA, and encourage those in attendance to connect with others who share a passion for music and the ability to use creativity to right social wrongs.
So if you’re in the Lynchburg, VA area this Monday, March 7… or Charlotte, NC on Tuesday, March 8… or in ANY OF THESE GREAT PLACES over the next few weeks, you’ll have the chance to check out the first ever Resolve Tour, featuring music and conversation with Koji.
The theme of the tour is “Connect. Collaborate. Create Change.” because each event is followed by a workshop for attendees to go deeper in exploring ways they can engage locally to affect change globally.
When Koji approached Resolve with the idea of a tour, he explained that, to him, a successful tour is about more than playing music. His concerts feature a combination of music, storytelling, media and visual art, all aimed at empowering young people to create positive, lasting change and build community with each other.
Resolve and Koji are determined to help stop the violence being carried out by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) – many of whom are children, abducted and forced to fight as soldiers against their will. Koji’s music has proven to be an awesome way to bring people together, and our hope is that those groups of people will share our commitment to ending this crisis and will want to learn how they can help.
Each event on the Resolve Tour will include music and conversation with Koji, a brand new Resolve video produced by our friends at Discover the Journey which highlights stories and messages from communities in central Africa affected by LRA violence, and an optional workshop in which participants will explore creative and effective ways to convince our nation’s leaders to responsibly confront these kinds of injustices.
So, if you are ready to hear some stellar music, engage in awesome conversations and connect with some amazing people who believe positive change in our world is possible and they want to be a part of it, then join up with the Resolve Tour when we come through your city.
