Despite more rain this morning, lots of people have been coming by the WITNESS tent. The sun came out in time for a really fun set by Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings.

I’ve also had an awesome time sharing the experience with all the other non-profits at Planet Roo. Folks from Oxfam, Carbon Shredders, Oceana and a bunch of other organizations have come by the tent to get more involved with WITNESS. We’ve gotten about 900 postcard petitions signed! (And you too can sign here) I’ve met an aspiring human rights lawyer, a young women who’s making a documentary in Ghana, a couple of activist musicians, and just lots of awesome people who care about social justice.

Tonight I’m looking forward to a late night performance by Kanye West, which ends a mere 6 hours before we open up the WITNESS tent for our last day of the festival.
