The United We Stand Festival, hosted by Free & Equal Elections Foundation, is moving to Los Angeles and has been rescheduled for the Fall of 2013. The festival was previously scheduled to take place on June 22 in Little Rock, Arkansas. Most of the speakers and performers previously scheduled for the Little Rock event are confirmed for Los Angeles.
Christina Tobin, Founder and Chair of Free & Equal, says the move was prompted by the need to provide a larger venue and accommodate additional sponsors and artists who want to participate. "There has been an outpouring of support and interest in this event," said Tobin, "By moving to Los Angeles we will be able to bring on even more A-list talent and reach a wider audience in keeping with our mission to spread electoral reform to all fifty states."
In addition to the upgraded venue, Free & Equal plans to live-stream the entire festival online and is currently seeking a partner for cable broadcasting.
The United We Stand Festival is designed to support grassroots efforts to bring independent candidates into the political debate while generating awareness about issues otherwise marginalized by traditional Left-Right politics.
The festival will include performances by several well known musicians. Notable guest speakers include former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, Dr. Jill Stein, the 2012 Green Party candidate for President, and popular independent media personalities like Ben Swann, Josh Tolley, and Amber Lyon, to name a few.
