A powerful speaker has the ability to open a mind, touch a heart, inspire action. Since 1990, SpeakOut’s dozens of speakers have been doing just that, reaching over 3 million people at thousands of campus and community events nationwide.
This year alone, SpeakOut pivoted swiftly when the pandemic hit. Since March, we’ve organized 30 webinars and virtual events, a Summer Institute for Faculty and Staff, and a Fall Youth Summit. And as the nation showed up to support Black Lives, SpeakOut was already positioned to offer hundreds of virtual speaking engagements and trainings on white supremacy and racial justice.
We were able to do this with your support and your courage to meet this historic moment!
Now it’s time to celebrate! Join us at SpeakOut’s 30th anniversary virtual celebration, focusing on the arts in social transformation with legendary scholar, poet, and playwright Sonia Sanchez and Marc Bamuthi Joseph, an acclaimed arts activist, spoken word performer, and cultural curator.
We’ll also have door prizes plus guest appearances from other SpeakOut speakers like Loretta Ross, Melissa Denizard, and Kausar Mohammed, among others. You’ll meet SpeakOut staff and board members and together, we’ll say goodbye to 2020 and look to the future and raise funds for 30 more years of Voices Changing Lives!
We can’t wait to be in community with you! Join us!
