In partnership with the Sounds True Foundation, author, musician, and teacher Justin Michael Williams has embarked on a multi-city outreach tour to bring his powerful message to teens and young adults across the country, spreading the tools of mindfulness and meditation to those who need it most—especially those facing homophobia, sexism, racism, depression, and poverty.

What is the Stay Woke, Give Back tour?

  • Increase self-awareness

  • Manage stress

  • Build resilience
  • Move forward on their journeys with hope
