“Everything we are working for is now in danger unless we produce
more young people with minds and hearts of integrity, democratic
instincts, and courage to face ruthless barefaced social evil. SpeakOut
is doing more than any other organization I know to help change
what young people hear and learn.”
— Peggy McIntosh, founder of the National SEED Project and author
of White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack
SpeakOut is the country’s only nonprofit speakers agency, each year transforming the lives of thousands of young people through the voices of our social justice speakers. We’re celebrating our 30th anniversary this coming January 1st so we’re kicking off a #30for30 fund drive this #GivingTuesday and we hope we can count on your support. Donate here.
We could give you 30 reasons why you should support SpeakOut but here are just 3 of them:
- A powerful speaker has the ability to open a mind, touch a heart, inspire action. SpeakOut’s dozens of speakers have been doing just that for 30 years, reaching over 3 million young people at thousands of campus and community venues nationwide.
Your donation will insure that SpeakOut can continue to grow and reach even more young people in the years to come.
- Voice Your Vote 2020 is SpeakOut’s campaign aimed at engaging college students in local, state, and national elections. Voter suppression efforts aimed at students are massive so our efforts need to be as well.
Your donation will support education, registration, and get-out-the-vote efforts on campuses nationwide.
- Public high school students and faculty also need to hear SpeakOut’s speakers. But they often don’t have the funds to cover the costs of bringing in a speaker. So in 2020, to meet this need, SpeakOut is creating web-based presentations and workshops.
Your donation will support the infrastructure to bring powerful and inspiring speakers to high school audiences across the country.
Please support SpeakOut’s critical work,
changing lives and supporting young people to find their own voice.
