Your Voice brings awareness to how your values, language
and tone can improve the wellbeing of individuals and communities.
The Use Your Voice campaign focuses on the
- Stand Up - Sometimes how you say something is
as important as what you are saying. Learn how to find what you are
passionate about and the most effective way to speak out. Whether
in protest, in letter form or even within a friendly conversation,
standing up is about finding a cause and the time, place and
position to communicate your message effectively.
- Walk the Talk - Standing up for a cause or
educating others includes your actions. Walk the talk means
employing behaviors that promote change, such as choosing to buy
products from companies that share your values, voting,
volunteering for causes you truly believe in, or being a role model
to family and friends.
- Amplify - People notice someone who speaks up
and walks the talk. How do you use your voice to inspire others?
Learn how to get connected to others who share your passion and how
to amplify your message to a greater audience.
