As SpeakOut marks our 30th anniversary year, we’re facing never-before-seen challenges as the coronavirus shuts down campuses and communities nationwide. This has led to the cancellations of dozens of engagements and SpeakOut speakers and artists are feeling the impact. Many of them depend on these eventss as their primary source of income or as the main way they raise funds for their own organizations. Plus as independent contractors, they don't qualify for unemployment benefits.
In response, SpeakOut has started a fund where 100% of your contribution will go directly to our impacted speakers and artists, to help them through these challenging and difficult times and show them we continue to honor their inspiring and powerful work to transform our fractured world. Thank you!
