JOIN OUR MISSION
Our mission to bring a voice to taboo topics and social injustices, through the arts, community conversations, mobilizing communities, and/or any creative platform that we discover. Furthermore, we believe in amplifying the voice of an individual, the community, or an injustice. We understand that our real power lies within our voices and unified efforts to bring about change.
We believe it takes much more than a protest. At Survivors Speak, we are committed to efforts that help inspire great change within our communities. We believe that working together, with those who believe in TRUE JUSTICE, only strengthens the impact of the change we NEED to see! Please email us to learn more about the work or if you'd like to get INVOLVED. WE NEED YOU!!
MARCHING FOR A CHANGE
At Survivors Speak, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing the injustice that the Black Community has felt for 400+ years. We will no longer be silent, but will work to bring change through our warrior cry!
Our organization believes in the power of education. We are committed to bringing change to our system and building a society that embodies the values and fairness that we all need.
We are committed to serving those that can't come out due to the Covid- 19 pandemic. We make weekly trips to ensure that our most vulnerable are taken care of.
Survivors Speak is more than just a protest organization! We fight to ensure that our nation acknowledges systemic racism and its overall impact on the United States. The legacy of racial oppression lies with us, especially when we consider the 400+ years of oppression faced by the black community. We also stand up for survivors of our criminal justice system, whether they be victims or defendants who were wrongfully convicted. This also includes individuals who are bullied, a survivor of human trafficking, rape and child abuse; anyone who needs a voice in our society. In order to accomplish these goals, we must seek legislative change, as well as apply pressure to our justice system. We must give individuals and communities the tools of self-empowerment. All of these actions push us toward a better tomorrow, and actively bends the arc of the moral universe toward justice.
"No matter how big a nation is, it is no stronger than its weakest people, and as long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you might otherwise."
