BAsics Bus Tour coming in February!!
The BAsics Bus Tour, sponsored by Revolution Books, will travel to college campuses, schools, community centers, from the mountains, to the valleys, from the suburbs to the rural areas, from Southern to Northern California in February. "Imagine buses with eye-catching decorations touring the nation, spreading revolution and BA's voice to those hungry for it in outlying areas..." This will hit the road starting from L.A. and travel north, stopping along the way until it gets to Northern California. This tour's experience will be recorded with regular updates posted online, sharing their accomplishments and what they're learning with the world. It will be a pilot project for a larger tour that will travel throughout the U.S. later in the year.
Funds and volunteers are needed right now.
