The Power Tour

Meet Shardae Moss, Producer of the Power Tour. Click the link to hear why she is investing her time and energy in the Power Tour.

What is the Power Tour?

It’s a 90-minute multimedia roadshow that marries performance arts and civic engagement. The Power Tour focuses on the Power of Your Vote. The project is seeking spoken word, musicians, DJs, singers, photographers, videographers, and others to share their thoughts and feelings about the voting process. 
 
In August 2024 the show will be held in communities with the lowest voter turnout – Englewood and Junction. The Power Tour is about Voter Education, not just registration. We feel this is important because educated voters make educated choices and this country can use all the educated voters we can get!

How can you participate?

Reach out and let us know that you are interested in helping with the Power Tour. We want to hear from you!
 
The Power Tour is funded by the Greater Toledo Community Foundation and is the brainchild of Reinvest Toledo. We are working in conjunction with our community partners, The League of Women Voters, Community Connections Consulting Services, and Unbounded Artists.
