When was the last time you felt you were heard? On the other hand, when was the last time you really listened? Did you give your undivided attention to the speaker or message? Our days are filled with interruptions. Whether it be from phones, advertisements, social media… even the intrusive thoughts in our heads. Spoken word has the power to unite communities if only its citizens took time to listen. Now is the chance to have your voice heard.
Since 2017, the University of Delaware campus has empowered students and community members to share their personal stories through the Voices project launched by the Center for Political Communication. Participants have previously shared their thoughts on gun violence, our divided nation, and the destructive nature of hate speech. Each year, we offer a general theme to promote civic engagement. Through nonpartisan, interdisciplinary outreach and education, the CPC equips students and the community with the political, social, and communication literacy needed to engage in civil discourse.
For Voices of UD 2024, we are providing you the opportunity to share how “My Future, My Voice” can change the trajectory.
The 2023 Harvard Youth Poll finds nearly half of young Americans feel anxious and are motivated to take action for change - to craft a better future. Safety, financial security, political divides, and mental health dominate the concerns of young Americans. Do you agree? We invite you to consider your future and share your voice.
The future is unwritten; how will you shape it into what you want it to be?
