Alixa and Naima interweave poetry, hip hop, multimedia theater, film, and intoxicating beats with on-the-ground activism to inspire movement building that is both creative and impactful. They have been at the forefront of the environmental and social justice movement for the last 12 years as key presenters from the United Nations to Rikers Island Prison. Climbing PoeTree has independently organized 27 national and international tours, taking their work from South Africa to Cuba, India to Mexico, and throughout the U.S., including an 11,000 miles journey on a bus converted to run on recycled vegetable oil. They have shared the stage with visionaries such as Alice Walker, Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, Cornel West, Naomi Klein, and Dead Pez, to name a few. Alixa and Naima use the power of art to expose injustice, heal from violence, and make a better future visible, immediate, and irresistible.
