Introducing! The ROOTS Rhizome Tour


The Membership Team will begin their work by traveling throughout ROOTS’ fourteen state service region, meeting in person (in COVID-safe ways) with members to listen and connect. This is new work and we are excited to hear from members how we all can help shape and sustain the heart of the organization, MEMBERSHIP!

There is nothing like crowdsourcing a community of brilliant and compassionate minds to determine what we need to restore, create, or relinquish,” Membership Director Aimee McCoy says in her letter, “I hope that we can connect and continue to build with each other, harnessing our momentum to change the world.” 

If you would like to serve as a Hometown Host on the ROOTS Rhizome Tour, please fill out the request form HERE. ROOTS will cover all costs of the ROOTS Rhizome Tour stops, in addition to offering a love offering to hosts.
