In October of 2011, environmental activist Dillon Thomson is taking to the road for a grassroots speaking tour across the United States. Having worked as an activist for over four years, Dillon has seen firsthand the sluggishness of the environmental movement. Responding to the alarming indicators of ecological collapse, Dillon will travel to colleges, community centers, and family rooms throughout the United States to tap the already-existing frustration and organize an international movement committed to protecting life on the planet.
