On October 16, we invite you to speak out with others around the world, as we support those who cannot do so safely. To showcase the power of our words, images, designs, videos and creativity by sharing our posts, and supporting partner organizations who all aim to protect and celebrate our blogging heroes and their ideas.
You can take part by adding your blog details and joining the global conversation on your own blog this Blog Action Day, by posting your #RaiseYourVoice post on your blog on October.
Not listening is another kind of silencing ~ non-violent, less openly retaliatory ~ but all the same still silencing. Listening and keeping the conversation going without taking it over helps the the silenced raise their voices. Be an ally, a bridge, a connector, an amplifier in the larger information ecosystem. Above all, listen, acknowledge and respond. Use your own voice to educate and inform others.
