The Call to Unite

Whilst we’re physically distant from each other, we’re finding new ways to come together around our shared humanity

Kick off your weekend with 24 hours of live-streamed music, conversations, performances, lessons and reflections from over 200 of the world’s most inspirational leaders, front-line heroes, artists, entertainers and personalities.

The Call to Unite is about bringing people together from around the world to support each other with the challenges of this moment in order to emerge from the crisis better than when it began.

‘Today, billions of people around the world are isolated and anxious because of the COVID-19 pandemic – unable to gather with loved ones, go to work, or even mourn those they’ve lost.

Still, in this moment of isolation, millions are rising to the occasion by showing each other love and support in countless ways. The Call to Unite is a celebration of those acts of humanity, and an invitation to the world to join in lifting one another in this moment of need. We need each other. Now more than ever.’

The Call to Unite

The Call to Unite is presented by UNITE, a new collaborative led by Tim Shriver and people from all walks of life who are dedicated to creating and supporting projects that address universal challenges we can only solve together.

‘We’re starving for an alternative to anger and anxiety and division. We’re starving for a pathway to justice and joy. This is our chance.

All these people – from President George W. Bush to Oprah Winfrey, from Eckhart Tolle to Deepak Chopra, from Krista Tippett to Debbie Allen, from TD Jakes to D-Nice, from Charlamagne tha God to Martha Beck – they’re all going to be there, teaching a lesson, teaching a masterclass on how to be a uniter.’
