This isn't exactly Lupe related, but if you're in the New York area and have no plans tonight, then you should definitely check this out:
WHO: Forest Whitaker, The Roots, Van Jones, Shepard Fairey, and a VERY SPECIAL SECRET GUEST
WHAT: The Roots and Shepard Fairey will join Van Jones and MoveOn.org in New York City on June 23rd to kick off a major new economic campaign called, "Rebuild the Dream".
While big banks and other major corporations are once again thriving, countless Americans continue to face high unemployment, low wages, home foreclosures and little hope about their economic future. Meanwhile in Washington, the debate is not about jobs, but rather deficit reduction. The Rebuild the Dream campaign will promote an economic agenda to protect and expand America’s middle class. The campaign will harness the power of culture and technology to mobilize, organize and broaden the base of people committed to economic solutions that will work for the middle class, and all who aspire to belong to it.
The Roots and Shepard Fairey will join Van Jones on stage as Van lays out the new campaign.
WHEN: Thursday, June 23, 2011
Photo call: 7:00-8:00 PM
