Chris Brown: It’s Our Nature to Love One Another

What is Love?

Love is Unity

Symphonic Love believes in encouraging individuality while still recognizing that we are all connected by our humanity.  Chis created his Unity Campaign based on this philosophy, which is the motivation by many of his artistic and philanthropic endeavors.

      • Chris launched the Unity Campaign early in the summer of 2013 by  featuring children and families from South LA’s Crenshaw Community in his “Don’t Think They Know”  music video, a powerful and inspiring statement to turn away from violence and toward unity.
      • In July 2013, he launched WE US – Walk Everywhere in Unity Shoes, a collaboration with city, nonprofit and community leaders  to distribute 1,000 Reebok Classics to young people, promoting the message that “wherever and whenever we walk, we are a united community.”  WE US was launched at three diverse neighborhoods in South LA.  Later that summer, Chris’ aunt Christine Brown brought WE US to Chris’ hometown of Tappahannock, VA and Richmond, VA and WE US is being planned for Harlem, NY. Read about it NEWS.

  • The third initiative of Chris’ Unity Campaign, the Unity Games, is a series of neighborhood basketball games to bring much needed hope and attention to overlooked communities and the inspiring heroes who uplift them. The first Unity Game was a collaboration between the LAPD, 2nd Call and Gang Interventionists to honor unsung heroes from the South LA and Watts neighborhoods. Read about it in NEWS.

Love is Respect

Symphonic Love believes that everyone deserves to be in healthy, loving relationships with the resources and skills to face the challenges of all forms of abusive relationships.

    • Over the past four years, Chris Brown and his mother Joyce have been a welcomed part of the Jenesse Center, learning about the cycle of domestic violence that has significantly impacted their lives. Chris and Joyce have been giving back with computers, artwork, festivals, school supplies and fun to the families who have lived through similar situations. Witnessing domestic violence as a child and then finding himself in the role of abuser as a teenager, Chris has been dedicating time and resources to improving his life and the lives of others.  Watch this moving VIDEO from the Jenesse Center about their work and relationship with Chris over the past four years.

Love is Dignity

Symphonic Love believes that everyone should be treated with dignity regardless of our differences. Our originality makes us unique, but we’re all connected by our humanity.

  • Symphonic Love Foundation sponsored the Home Again Walk in 2012 to raise funds to provide shelter and support services to homeless men, women, children and veterans in Chris’s hometown of Richmond, VA.  Symphonic Love also provided back-to-school backpacks for the kids as well as special visits with families.  Christine Brown and Team Breezy are continuing to volunteer with a confidential shelter in Richmond, VA.

Love is Knowledge
