Now more than ever, it’s important for people to come together to offer messages of hope as we adjust to the new normal. And starting on Friday, May 1 at 8pm ET through Saturday, May 2 at 8pm ET, listeners can hear The Call to Unite as SiriusXM livestreams the event on SiriusXM Stars (Ch. 109).

The Call to Unite​ is a 24-hour global livestream event that will bring people together across the world to celebrate our shared humanity. Over 200 cultural, spiritual, civic, and community leaders, as well as front-line heroes, artists, entertainers, and more, will offer lessons, performances, conversations, and other gifts to support all of us in coping with the challenges of this moment. All participants and viewers will be invited to #answerthecall by giving, serving, and sharing their stories. The growing list of participants includes Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts, Portugal. the Man, Steve Aoki, and many, many more.

While billions of people around the world feel isolated and anxious due to the COVID-19 pandemic — ​unable to gather with loved ones, go to work, or even mourn those they’ve lost — ​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, as well as an invitation to the world to join in lifting one another in this moment of need. The event will also make it easy to help people from around the world to around the block; through its service partners, ​GiveDirectly​ and ​Points of Light​, viewers can give whatever they are able — ​whether financial support or volunteer hours — ​to families and communities that need it most.

Both The Call to Unite — presented by UNITE, a new collaborative led by Tim Shriver and people from all walks of life dedicated to projects that address universal challenges — and SiriusXM Stars are available to subscribers and non-subscribers alike as part of the recently announced free streaming access period through May 31.
