Mission:Charley advocates unity through the belief that all have the right to a peaceful way of life with the understanding that peace is obtained through tolerance. Hatred, intolerance and oppression are generated by fear and worry. It is the purpose of Charley to diminish thoughts of fear and worry through music with the ultimate goal of a conscious awakening and realization that we are all one in spite of social preferences, political views, religious practices, geographic location or financial status. •
