You Have A Voice Campaign was created to give the voiceless youth that have experienced bullying. Often times, bullying fall on death ears. Sometimes it's simply because the adults are not trauma informed, doesn't think it's a big deal, not comfortable with handling these situations or doesn't believe them. Our goal is to amplify their voices, give encouragement to ask for help, opportunity to educate people on the effects bullying has on youth and give testimonies of those who have experienced bullying but was able to overcome it. We call on our celebrities, influencers, pro athletes and corporations to join us during our campaign throughout bullying prevention month. More details will be coming a few months prior to our campaign kickoff. Were planning to kick off the You Have A Voice Campaign in September - October 2022.
