Let us unite against hate by coming together as a community, literally Singing for Our Lives! We invite you to send a strong message of peace and love to our city. On Saturday, September 16, Indivisible Denver and affiliated grassroots organizations are hosting a flashmob and sing-along. Singers from across Colorado will first gather at the Shorter Community AME church for a rehearsal. All singers (professional, amateur, or just people who want to be part of the "mob") are welcome to join. Following the rehearsal, we will all head to our flash mob location (to be disclosed at the rehearsal), where we will surprise the Denver community with Holly Near's song "Singing for Our Lives." We will then walk over to the 16th Street Mall where we will continue in an inspirational sing-along, sending a message of unity!
We are also holding an online fundraiser to offset the costs of this event. If you are interested in contributing, please donate here.
This is the song we'll be singing for the flashmob, with verses adapted to our current moment:
