posted March 13, 2010 09:02:00 AM CST | 17 comments

The Hip Hop Caucus, which played an integral role in T.I.’s “Respect My Vote” campaign, has started a new global awareness tour that will teach the general public about taking part in clean energy alternatives.

Along with information provided through round tables, lectures, and rallies, entertainers such as rapper Biz Markie, R&B singer D. Woods and actress Gloria Reuben will also take part in raising awareness.

Reverend Lennox Yearwood Jr., who serves as The Hip Hop Caucus’ president, explained the benefits for the people who attend one of the eight dates of the tour. “The Hip Hop Caucus Clean Energy Now! Tour will amplify and unite the voices of young people, African Americans, the Hip Hop community, and the faith community, around the critical need for clean energy jobs now and a clean energy future for our country.”

Expecting to visit several cities, including Little Rock, AR, Columbus, OH, and Washington, DC, Yearwood Jr. added, “We anticipate this tour will go a long way to educate and mobilize communities for a brighter future through policy that will reduce poverty and pollution at the same time.”
