LA Rising’s Re-Education Camp Exposes Thousands Of Festival Goers To Bigger Ideas

December 31, 1969

NGO villages don’t normally steal the show, but history changed on July 30th at the LA Coliseum. The Re-Education camp became the festival’s headliner for most of the day as thousands of kids poured into three  40 x 40 tents and satellite stations to learn more about what’s really happening in the world.  

With a line up including the likes of Rage Against the Machine, Muse, Rise Against and Lauryn Hill....you wouldn’t think people would leave their seats, but that wasn’t the case. Kids visited the different areas of the Re-Education Camp, used the online computer database system onsite to share their information with their favorite orgs and received a limited edition Re-Education Camp poster, screened by Hit & Run, when they visited at least 15 organizations. Global Inheritance normally doesn’t get involved with helping produce these types of activations, but this truly turned into a great event and the stars aligned when the doors at the LA Coliseum opened. 43 NGO’s organization walked away with tons of new members and donations, Tom Morello walked the camp to support the groups before hitting the main stage to close out the night and Goldenvoice produced yet another excellent festival.
 
We've included several of our favorite photos in this gallery but pictures don’t do it justice. Thanks to everyone involved. This was an epic day and really raised the bar for future NGO festival areas around the world.
