It’s been said that music can change the world. Some might denounce that as exaggeration, but at minimum, music does have the power to stir emotions and bring attention to worthy causes.

In these trying times, we’ve attempted to distill some of these best protest songs of all time, so here are 50 that have impacted our collective consciousness.

A Note from the Editor
This website is a labor of love filled primarily with curated content from many people and places. Any content that comes from elsewhere will be shown with quotes or links. My desire is to create a space for others to gather who are on a spiritual journey, doing their own internal work and have a deep calling to make the world a better place. Whenever possible (mostly timing), I will share my thoughts around the content I shared...add my perspective...but sometimes I know I won't be able to do this and still want to be able to share in the moment...when it feels relevant to me and hopefully relevant for you. I hope you find value in the conversations at this table and will join me on a regular basis. You can also find me on Instagram and on Facebook.
