The Global Coalition of Alternative Voices

What constitutes an "alternative voice?" Persons or organizations who are actively participating in the healing of humanity and the planetary eco-system. Alternative voices inspire people to cooperate with others in building alternatives that will ultimately bring a Spiritualution℠ movement to the entire planet. Alternative voices are willing to take risks and rock the boat in order to initiate much-needed change in the status quo. There are alternative voices in all walks of life, including music, art, film, activism, industry, politics, education, communications, technology, architecture, agriculture, religion, and spirituality.
