“The primary purpose of this tour is to collect petition signatures and educate people about Southern forests, Dogwood Alliance, and our Kentucky Fried Forests campaign,” Lindsey says. “We will do this through tabling at some local and regional festivals, making presentations, and holding house parties.”
Lindsey kicked off her “Tour de Dogwood” at the Bonaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, June 10-13, leading volunteers at a Dogwood information table and participating in a sustainability forum with reggae music star Jimmy Cliff.
June 22-26, was at the U.S. Social Forum in Detroit, the largest activist conference and movement-building engine in the country.
From there, it’s back South (see schedule below). While she’s out and about, Lindsey would love to meet as many Dogwood supporters as she can.
“I’m still adding dates to my travels, and I encourage anyone who would like to see a Dogwood presentation, host a house party, or who knows of an event that needs a Dogwood information table to please let me know,” she says.
Contact Lindsey directly via email or at 828-280-3333 to add your event. See you this summer!
