#12 On the road with James Taylor and Jackson Browne & Non-Profit Tabling !

Hello Guacamole Funders!
We’re jumping back in on the road with Jackson Browne and James Taylor, introducing you to the non-profit organizations tabling along the way…
First on this run, on December 4th in St. Louis, where we are tabling with Veterans For Peace. Veterans For Peace is a global organization of Military Veterans and allies whose collective efforts are to build a culture of peace by using our experiences and lifting our voices. We inform the public of the true causes of war and the enormous costs of wars, with an obligation to heal the wounds of wars. Our network is comprised of over 140 chapters worldwide whose work includes: educating the public, advocating for a dismantling of the war economy, providing services that assist veterans and victims of war, and most significantly, working to end all wars. www.veteransforpeace.org
Next, we go to Kansas City on December 5th, where we meet Mid-Missouri Peaceworks. They are a grassroots membership-based, non-profit organization working to create a peaceful, just and sustainable future. Peaceworks does intersectional education and advocacy around a constellation of connected issues with much of our attention currently focused on a carbon-free, nuclear-free energy future that provides for the needs of all without imperiling future generations. midmopeaceworks.org
On December 7th we move on to Omaha, where we find the wonderful City Sprouts, an organization committed to gardening education and increasing food access in the Omaha area. Originally founded in 1995 as a community garden in North Omaha, City Sprouts has expanded to include a second community garden in South Omaha, multiple urban farm sites, and two education centers. With an extensive summer internship and programs that serve all ages, City Sprouts empowers the Omaha community to access healthy and local food through sustainable gardening and urban farming. Visit www.omahasprouts.org for more information.
We then travel to Des Moines, Iowa, for the December 8th show, and we are visiting with Iowa Rivers Revival, a statewide nonprofit leading Iowans to protect, restore, and enjoy our rivers. They tell us: “We became a federal nonprofit in 2009 and since then have focused our efforts on these priorities: education and advocacy programs, being nonpartisan, being inclusive and collaborative, and increasing free-flowing, healthy rivers for recreation opportunities and safe drinking water. We believe environmental stewardship and literacy begin with exposure, so we will be focusing on education outreach at this tabling event. We will bring awareness to the threats impacting the condition and quality of Iowa’s rivers such as flooding, pollution, erosion, and general apathy for conservation priorities. We will provide information on river basics, river restoration, nutrient reduction in our rivers, low-head dams, and water trails throughout Iowa.”  www.iowarivers.org
Finally, on December 10th in Grand Rapids, Michigan, we welcome back Plastic Free Cirriculum, who tabled at an earlier show as well! More information about their great work is at www.plasticfreecurriculum.org
We hope you enjoy reading about these incredible organizations… they never fail to inspire us and help keep us going!
We’ll be back next week with the final shows on the tour! Stay safe, everyone!
