We create a safe platform for all who seek a foundation to discuss topics regarding social injustice we witness in our everyday lives.

We are certain that We are the Voice can reinstate the power of community engagement that we have lost touch with over the years and allow people to address the division, political trauma, and distrust we exhibit towards our nation and ourselves

President, We Are The Voice

Statement from the
President.

I want to welcome you to We Are the Voice; the home of amplifying powerful voices for change. I am honored to have you all onboard. When We Are the Voice was founded I wondered how we could have all voices be heard together. I recognized the need for a safe space that identified diversity but carried the hope of unity amongst all people.

Today, we live in a world that is captivated by the injustices we witness. We have sought refuge from various platforms. Specifically, a space to accommodate the need for us to exercise our power for change. Some of which we have been successful. I understand that social media activism heavily represents our voices, but we still can’t unite under this force only. Traditional activism has done so much for us but now we live in a world that is pushing beyond in-person interactions. So what do we do now? Combine the two? Or create a way to accommodate all voices inspired by both approaches?

We have started something new. Something that will bring the world together to find solutions to issues in our society. We often underestimate the power of the people, especially when united. I am proud of the platform we have created. We are doing what the world declared impossible. Under us, we will house all voices who respect the universal declaration of human rights and we will prevail. This is why We Are the Voice is here today: to represent the light at the end of the tunnel and to shift the focus of the people's voices back to ourselves. Recognizing that we are our very own heroes and heroines.

Lastly, I say to you all, I am proud to call you all my friends and fellow change agents. Indeed, I recognize the uniqueness we carry together in our lives. You are here because you showed yourself that you are ready to support the world with the dreams we will focus to accomplish. We are the pillars the world has been waiting for. But in all things, we must remember to aspire to inspire and let the generations after us know that together We Are the Voice of change.


Our Values

Represent the change we hope to witness in the world. Live by thy word and honor thy voice

Create a sense of community, regardless of neighborhood level or as a global society

Building strong communities through collaboration to provide a basis for positive change

Encouraging responsible citizen participation to help foster social solidarity

Promoting the social, economic and political empowerment of all individuals and communities to preserve Human Rights moral principles

Developing women leadership to build upon the needs and values of people and to inspire the hope and potential of others

Respecting the diversity of life to maintain a sustainable human and physical environment

To bridge the gap between social media activism and traditional activism and the secondary mission of uniting and amplifying the voices of the youth in politics.
