DMV Family: Don't forget to come hang out with us today! Michelle Ramos and I will be meeting up for #ROOTSRoadTrip stop number two today, April 22 – Washington, DC – 3-4pm at The Festival Center, 1640 Columbia Rd NW. Thanks to Ahmané Glover, Rev. Eric and the Sanctuaries for hosting us. Stop in, say "heeeeeeyyyyy" and let's talk about the great work y'all are doing in the DC/Baltimore area. See y'all soon! 💜✨🚗 #RRT #AlternateROOTS #ArtsAndActivism #WhenShensTravelogue #PorchSitting
#Repost @alternateroots: One of Michelle Ramos’ first steps as ROOTS’ new executive director was to announce the #ROOTSRoadTrip – that she’d be packing her bags and hitting the road to meet ROOTers where you are, in your communities, in your neighborhoods, on the front porch.
You can read Michelle’s full #ROOTSRoadTrip announcement here, which invited folks to host a stop on the tour. Responses came rushing in and we are now excited to announce there will be twelve stops on the #ROOTSRoadTrip!
At this time of transition, and in connection with the Renew Your ROOTS initiative, we’re grounding ourselves in the heart and soul of Alternate ROOTS – you, our members. We hope you can make it out to the #ROOTSRoadTrip and meet up with Michelle somewhere along the route!
We’re still in the process of coordinating all stops with our local hosts, so keep an eye on the #ROOTSRoadTrip page where we'll add information about upcoming stops! Here's what's coming up in April:
