Dear Denver,

We know you want to see justice, equity, and unity in our world. But how do we create this kind of world in a time of national division?

Division is exhausting. It’s unhelpful. And it prevents us from experiencing the joy and beauty of true community.

At Vocal Coalition (VOCO), we believe that if we can convince divided people to unite through music, we can work together to create pathways across our communities that defeat division and produce mutual understanding between us all.

Here’s what people who have worked with VOCO in the past are saying about their experience:

“It was the most beautiful moment of transformation I’ve ever had at a show.”

“It helps me practice community in new ways.”

“There was kind of a spiritual connection.”

“You’re building your city in a way you don’t get to anywhere else in your life.”

Here’s the harsh truth: the damage of division isn’t going to magically go away. The longer we wait to repair the damage, the harder our healing process will be.

My challenge to you is this: don’t just sit there. Become a unifier through Vocal Coalition. Leverage your love of music and people to unite divided communities with us, and together we will build the world of our dreams.

One love,

Travis Branam

Executive Director, Vocal Coalition
