ATLANTA (AP) — Grammy-winning rapper T.I. will take part in a discussion regarding criminal justice reform and equal access to opportunities in technology.
T.I. will join television commentator Van Jones for the We Rise Tour in downtown Atlanta on Wednesday evening. This is the fourth stop of the 14-city tour that will end in Las Vegas on Aug. 20.
The event has been held in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Denver. Music mogul Russell Simmons, entertainer Nick Cannon and former NFL player Ryan Harris participated in those cities.
Ticket proceeds will go toward Jones’ nonprofit Dream Corps and local partner charities. Jones founded Dream Corps in 2014 in an effort to help men and women with underrepresented backgrounds find success in technology industries.
