At the beginning of 2020, few could have imagined the loss, isolation and fear that so many people around the world have experienced—and are still facing—due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the midst of the chaos, Dr. Timothy Shriver, Special Olympics Chairman of the Board and founder of UNITE, made it his mission to seek out the cracks of light that led to community, compassion and connection. In his new book The Call to Unite: Voices of Hope and Awakening, Shriver interviews prominent thought leaders who share stories that offer hope and wisdom during these challenging times.
The Call to Unite brings insights and inspiration from world-renowned voices such as Bishop TD Jakes, Elizabeth Gilbert, Van Jones, Arthur Brooks, Amy Grant, Dr. Rheeda Walker, Pastor Rick Warren, Rev. Jacqui Lewis, Jewel, Deepak Chopra and many others.
To help celebrate the launch of the book, Shriver is hosting a virtual book tour featuring conversations with some of these personalities including Special Olympics Vice Chair of the Board of Directors and Chief Inspiration Office Loretta Claiborne.
