2021 Midwest Tour
We had such an amazing time during the 2020 Southern Tour that we decided we had to show off the Notorious RVG in the Midwest!
Beginning August 15th, the Notorious RVG will head to Ohio, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois and North Dakota to support Midwest equality warriors.
Like our last tour, this one includes virtual programming and physical stops in: retail areas with strong foot traffic, undergraduate campuses and law schools, community events (parades / fairs / etc.), and corporate HQs upon request.
NOTE: Given the nature of RVs, a pandemic, and the weather all listed stops are subject to change. Check back regularly and follow us on social media (@VoteEqualityUS) for the latest updates.
