When I think of the impact that SpeakOut has had and the platform and the voice that you have given to so many, it’s truly amazing. There is so much that SpeakOut offers from the amazing speakers and documentaries and webinars and e-courses, books, the list goes on and on. When I think of resources and programming, SpeakOut is the first that comes to mind. Thank you so much for your kindness and outreach and networking and making everyone feel like they belong. Thanks for making everyone feel like they are included, that they have a voice, and they make a difference.
