Touring as a Sustainable Practice
In an effort reduce travel and to lower costs for venues who host Peterson, he likes to work on a tour schedule. Fall 2015 he traveled to the Southwest and focused on Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. Spring 2016 he spent a month in New England presenting at universities, schools, and places of worship.
In Fall 2016 he will stay closer to home and make short trips to venues throughout the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, where Peterson has lived since 2010. He will spend time in residency at a variety of colleges including Elizabethtown and Allegheny.

Peterson Toscano led a transformative lunch-time discussion exploring the intersection between race, justice, and climate change, focusing on environmental racism in disaster relief efforts. From beginning to end, Peterson made Bates students feel welcomed, supported, and hopeful - a task nearly impossible when discussing the climate crisis. Peterson Toscano, a true beam of light, touched hearts and minds as he equipped Bates students with the rhetorical tactics and perspective necessary to create a more equitable world, and for that we are so thankful!
