What is Rolling Thunder Down Home Democracy Tour?
It’s politics…it’s music…it’s culture…it’s workshops…it’s good food…it’s a county fair with guts. It’s a revival with a reason. A concert with consciousness. A festival with funk and function. The RTD-HDT reawakens the great American tradition of asserting the power of regular people to fight for their rights; throws in plenty of soul stirring music, and hip-hop jams, and workshops, topped off by firebrand oratory by Jim Hightower and Patch Adams and Granny D, and SHAZAM…a thunderstorm of motivated minds and bodies demanding to take our democracy back from the greed heads and boneheads who have taken it hostage.

It’s puts the party back in politics…plus it’s populist and progressive and proud of it!

Details on activity follows on Page 2…
