The Unity Collective is a peace movement started from our tiny apartment in Brooklyn, New York. Our mission is to cultivate radical inclusivity and unity for all people through music, community and collaboration.
In January of 2016 my husband Nathaniel and I left NYC and spent 365 days on the road performing and touring to all 50 states performing 200 shows, and at the conclusion of our shows we invited everyone to sign their message of unity on The Unity Car.
Each day our goal is to to build a community based around radical inclusivity for all persons in America regardless of race, religion, gender, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation.
In October of 2016 we concluded the 50 state Unity Collective USA Tour and on May 28th 2017 we successfully auctioned The Unity Car off on eBay and donated 100% of the proceeds to The Music Therapy Department at Beacon Children Hospital (formerly known as Memorial Children's Hospital.)
On January 2nd, 2016 we launched The Unity Collective from NYC and set out in our 2002 Volvo with 263,000 miles on it to tour to all fifty-states of America. By the end of the tour "The Unity Car" became a collective art piece with tens of thousands of messages of unity written on it and it became a moving symbol of hope for all.
The Unity Collective USA bridged the gap between all people in America to remember our humanity. We did this by performing original uplifting music in every state while inviting all people to sign "The Unity Car” with their message of peace and unity. Join us in cultivating unity one person and one conversation at a time. Also, share the love by using our official hashtag #unity4all
