Bringing people together and dissolving differences through music

As we prepare for Campaign Nonviolence's online music festival, it's worth remembering that music is the great uniter.

“Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.”
— Sarah Dessen

Getting in the spirit of For Goodness Sake, our online music festival, we discuss a short and sweet quote from Sarah Dessen about the power of music. Explore music’s transcendent ability to bring people together and dissolve differences. Compare the power of music to that of poetry in taking us beyond our thoughts to exist fully in our life force.

On August 20, join me, Rivera Sun and Henry Cervantes for Turn It Up: Music in the Movement, an online interactive training where you can learn more about how to use music to elevate the impact of your nonviolent efforts. Then tune in for the festival next day featuring 40-plus musicians, speakers, reports from our co-sponsors and more!
