Think it’s impossible that Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians could ever sit down together in a civil conversation? Rebellious Truths doesn’t. The nonprofit Rebellious Truths (www.rebellioustruths.org) is making modern history by hosting the very first “Sounds of Truth Festival” on Saturday, July 7th.

REBELLIOUS TRUTHS PRESENTS SOUNDS OF TRUTH FESTIVAL
A Visionary Experiment in Empathy, Good times and Understanding.

Think it’s impossible that Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians could ever sit down together in a civil conversation? Rebellious Truths doesn’t. The nonprofit Rebellious Truths (www.rebellioustruths.org) is making modern history by hosting the very first “Sounds of Truth Festival” on Saturday, July 7th, 2012 at Mason Regional Park in Irvine, California from 10 AM to 5 PM. This event will be part festival with music, art, dancing and food, and part visionary practice in empathy and unity. This practice, never before attempted, will consist of a series of dialogues between the supporters of Rebellious Truths and those who identify themselves as Independents, Occupy, Tea Party, Libertarians, Republicans, Democrats and all others who wish to attend. The dialogues will be facilitated by the internationally recognized World in Conversation Project that has facilitated dialogues for the United Nations, NATO, and Israel-Palestinian among other high-tension conflicts. Its founders Dr. Sam Richards (of TED Talk fame) and his wife Dr. Laurie Mulvey will be overseeing the conversations.

Through a series of professionally facilitated discussions, the polarized political and ideological groups can begin to understand one another and help put a human face on the superficial labels. The Sounds of Truth Festival is about bringing together these divided bands of Americans who are willing to set aside their judgments and stereotypes in the hopes of contributing to the vision of a more truthful, humane, and just America. This event will demonstrate that these groups can have a civil conversation and spend one day together trying to understand their fellow Americans. If they can, then so can the rest of our nation.

Since its launching in September 2011, Rebellious Truths videos have collectively garnered over two million views and a strong social media presence of 35,000 Facebook friends, and partnered with many respectable and diverse organizations from across the nation.

Join us on the journey Saturday, July 7th, 2012 at Mason Regional Park in Irvine, CA 92612. Check in begins at 9:45 AM for those in the dialogue groups. Activities begin at 10:00 AM and go until 5 PM. Music, food, dancing and art will continue throughout the day.

IF YOU WANT TO BE IN THE DIALOGUES PLEASE SEND REQUEST, YOUR NAME AND PHONE INFORMATION TO DialogueSoundsOfTruth@RebelForTruth.org

IF YOU WANT TO COME TO THE EVENT OR RECEIVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PLEASE SEND REQUEST TO RsvpSoundsofTruth@RebelForTruth.org

EVENT IS FREE. A SUGGESTED DONATION OF $20+ WOULD BE APPRECIATED TO OFFSET COSTS.
