Chorus Director Jeff Buhrman writes about WE BELONG: “We are navigating complicated times in a sharply divided nation. Many are feeling sadness and fear. Every day, there are thousands of transgender students standing at a terrifying crossroads, better known as the decision between which restroom door to open...the one with a dress or the one with a suit? There are many of us who are made to feel different because of our country of origin, our race, our religious beliefs, our gender, or our sexual orientation. VOICES has chosen to be bold hearted, singing louder for equality, freedom, and peace. We want to connect with others and get the wheels of social and equal justice spinning on a trajectory that will make all of us better. We will continue to speak and sing our truths with our stories and the stories of others.”
