Starting at Shirley Grossman’s home at 4505 S Pittsburg St, Spokane, on June 11th at 11 am, Shirley and Roz will don their signature big purple hats and set off with posters, a table, and unbridled enthusiasm. Their mission is to foster respectful communication and highlight the importance of community solidarity.


"We used to be able to talk to each other without malice... and truly listen to each other! Roz and I would love to bring back that basic respect for all so we can communicate kindly," said Shirley Grossman.


Roz and Shirley's dedication to the Unity Tour is evident. In addition to registering voters, they will document the questions and concerns of the people they meet and present these findings to political candidates, advocating for more kindness in the political discourse.
