TOGETHER TOUR ANNOUNCES 2016 TOUR DATES AND TALENT—HEADLINED BY GLENNON DOYLE MELTON, SEANE CORN, VALARIE KAUR & DR. JACQUI LEWIS— TICKETS ON SALE JULY 14
Powered by Life Reimagined
New York, NY/July, 2016 – WME Live, a division of global entertainment, sports, and fashion leader WME | IMG, will present TOGETHER – a 6-city nationwide tour gathering people of every age, race, orientation, religion, and background to enjoy a night of storytelling centered around purpose, community, and action.
The inaugural tour will be headlined by our co-creators and thought-leaders − Glennon Doyle Melton, Seane Corn, Valarie Kaur and Dr. Jacqui Lewis*. Collectively, these women have inspired millions through their best-selling books, global speaking engagements, and vast online communities. Special celebrity guests will join the tour in select cities where women from across the country will come together to get real, get inspired, get connected, and get into action.
“Together is the movement that has been our collective dream for years,” says Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, who leads WME’s Literary Division and is producing the tour. “We are creating an interactive and spontaneous night of authentic conversation. An inclusive gathering where the audience is just as important as the speakers. The people on the stage at TOGETHER won’t tell you the right way to live, but instead share their questions and vulnerable truths, offering wisdom, kindness, and direction along the way. Following the event, we will be brave in taking action on behalf of our sisters and brothers, sons and daughters, neighbors and fellow citizens because we know together is better. It just is.”
Our title sponsor and partner, Life Reimagined, brings powerful, practical tools and personal life coaching, guiding participants through activities at the event and online that will continue to inspire everyone toward mapping out their unique purpose and passions in life, and creating a remarkable future.
Our other partner, State Farm, is here to help women take control of their financial future, right here and Write Now. They want Together attendees to understand that when you sit down and write a plan, the possibilities are endless.
Organizers anticipate that TOGETHER will be a bold gathering of courageous women who are ready to take their futures into their own hands − and then holding hands, will heal the world. This will be a community of united hearts, minds, and voices around a vision of love, well-being, and purpose for all.

WED / Sep. 28 Portland, OR Keller Auditorium
